With the recent announcements of a couple providers increasing their retention I started to wonder how they would implement this new storage.
Hopefully someone who went and upgraded recently with either of the two providers can shed some light, or if someone has been there when it happened with another provider maybe they can chime in too..
So my question, or seed for debate is..
Will these upgrades provide access to the old articles and binaries once out of reach, or is this new disk space viewed as virgin drives? Waiting for new data to be written to them actually increasing retention one day at a time.
