Moving searches older than 2015 to cold storage

When you submit a free search on the public Mascot server, the search results are stored on the server for a certain time, but we don’t guarantee they will be kept indefinitely. The size of the search archive has increased substantially since the limits were increased in March 2020. In order to avoid running out of storage space, we are gradually moving some of the historic archive into cold storage.

In November 2022, we archived search results up to 1 Jan 2010. On 5 September 2023, we have now moved all searches up to 1 Jan 2015 into cold storage. If you submitted a search before 1 Jan 2015 and would like to download a copy after the archival, please send us an e-mail and we can send you the results file.

The archival policy only affects Mascot running on our public website. If you have an in-house licence, the above policy does not apply.
