    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.

    Ideas?

    The drives are there, ready and added to the system. Now, as each day goes by, the articles will not expire till the rentention limit is reached. It doesn't pull in all the old articles, it keeps getting the new ones and pushes the old ones back. The oldest articles on the servers now will keep getting older and older, until they hit the new retention limit (e.g 250 or 270 days) and expire
