I couldn't imagine Google storing and retaining all of that stuff from the files groups. I thought I read online that there can be over a terabyte of new stuff posted in those files every day, which would take serious money to keep going for something only those that know you can get stuff from there know about. The way the news groups went back when, they weren't probably meant to be a huge files repository.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Something happened about a year and a half to two years ago, I'm not sure what since I avoid using Google for anything whenever possible, but folks accessing UseNet through Google started having a lot of problems. When this happened traffic took another nose dive on the newsgroups.
