Retention refers to the length of time articles are stored in a Usenet system. Retention is usually determined by "first in - last out" logic where the oldest articles are deleted as new articles are stored. The oldest article in a Usenet system is typically what defines that system's retention. Giganews offers 3+ of binary newsgroup retention and 14+ years of text newsgroup retention.
