when are old files deleted?

I posted some photos some years ago, but the no longer seem to exist. When do you delete files? After how many months or years?

@cicerone imposter,

the photos were probably deleted by the web hosting company (imageshack, photobucket, etc), not A2k...

@Region Philbis,
Thank you. I did use photobucket for a long time.

As of June 30, 2017, Photobucket dropped its free hosting service, and requires a US$99 annual subscription to allow external linking to all hosted images, or a US$399 annual subscription to allow the embedding of images on third-party websites, such as personal blogs and forums.

Those cheap asses require an annual subscription now to embed images hosted on their server to a2k and other places.

Hope the photos in question aren't your own personal ones. If so? Get them off their servers as they're being held for ransom (metaphorically).

I don't worry about those photos that I posted on social media. I've taken thousands of pictures during my travels, and about 10% of them are some of my favorites. I have made hard copies for family and friends as a hobby. Even sent some to a2k members.
