Retention times

Could someone tell me the retention times for your news servers please. Everytime i complete a d/load from newsgroups i have problems with incomplete files and not enough blocks when the downloads repaired in quivk par......Is this because the files are dissapearing from the server before i get chance to get them all.. a mate downloading same stuff with a different provider has no problems at all.....


thanks for your time.... Wink

Retention times

I believe its binaries 6 -> 7 days and text 30+ days. Some have said binaries are about 5 days but I know plusnet were aiming for 7.

There were issues with posts being deleted erlier than the above days but that was fixed a while back. If you are seeing missing posts less than 7 days old you may want to report it via a contact us ticket (specifying what are missing) so they can investigate.
