Files on Space bucket deleted time to time

I’m not sure what happen but I uploaded files a month ago e.g. .gpx, .png, .jpg, .txt, .doc, via my app to my digitalocean space bucket but when I check today uploaded files gone. Please can someone enlighten me if there are policies for auto deletion occurences? this is very alarming because my site is in production stage now, I doubting DO space bucket now, how can you auto delete my files? and there are no logs to find out what happen.

No worries, DO Spaces shouldn’t auto-delete your files. It could be a few things. Have you checked the bucket settings for any lifecycle rules? Also, maybe reach out to DO support, they’re usually pretty helpful.

Heya, @julivergalleto

Your files will not be auto-deleted in any time. If you’re using any GUis like Cyberduck you can check the history logs for any files being previosly deleted.
