I am w/ XSUsenet and my subscription w/ those folks are ending at the end of Sep.

I would like to try out this service for 1 reason :

w/ my current subscription w/ XSUsenet, any files that is 1.4 yr. old for e.g., there are too many loss packet. The files are there, but I get 1/20 per file, or 2/20, or 7/20, so even w/ all the PAR2, it can't be recovered, not to mention the PAR2 are also damaged.

So we are not talking about 13 yr. of retention, I only need 1 or 2 year retention, but w/ XSUsenet, it's useless

So I wonder for those members here who is with Newsleecher USEnet, do you have the same problem. i.e. the files are there from the retention, but the packets w/i each file are mostly lost. What is your experience in download files that are a few years old?
