Does C2 Object Storage have a minimum storage duration policy?
No. Unlike other cloud object storage services, C2 Object Storage does not have a minimum storage duration policy. We do not charge data deletion penalties.
How does C2 Object Storage prevent data loss caused by human errors or malicious encryption?
