By default, files that are deleted, overwritten, or otherwise removed from the system backing up are retained in the Backblaze backup for 30 days, for the purpose of recovery. After 30 days, those files are deleted from the Backblaze backup as well.
With the introduction of our Extended Version History feature in October 2019, you can now retain data that has been deleted, overwritten, or otherwise removed from the computer being backed up for one year, or even forever. For more information, please see our Extended Version History page here.
