How far back is upload history kept?

As a follow up to this thread: how far back are players able to download old versions of a game? Are old versions available indefinitely, or are there limits in terms of version age and-or the amount of data uploaded to a channel?

I believe as long as each version stays below the maximum size limit, there shouldn’t be a problem, and a good number of older versions should be available to the users.

I haven’t tried it myself, but butler uses a smart algorithm when uploading new versions, and it creates a “patch” so that instead of uploading the whole project from scratch, it only uploads what’s new. This makes handling multiple versions easier, and with less costs.

For the most part, I don’t think you need to worry about this, unless you want to preserve a huge amount of older versions.

Alright, sounds good. Thanks again!
