We are changing our policy governing retention of file transfer activity data. Starting December 4, 2017, we will remove summary data for file transfer tasks older than 3 months. While metrics indicate that users rarely access this information, we will continue to allow downloading of summary usage data (up to three months old) via the transfer API. Detailed information about file transfer tasks, such as individual events, will be stored for 30 days, after which only summary data for tasks are stored.
