Hello,

I am wondering how long data is accessible in LimeSurvey once the survey is deactivated (whether there is a maximum amount of time that survey data is kept before it is deleted/access is denied).

Thank you.

Hi,
as this is the forum about the self hosted "community" edition the data of deactivated surveys will never be deleted or so.
Because the survey is on your server it is your responsibility.
As you might have read in the manual ( https://manual.limesurvey.org/Closing_a_survey ) the data table is renamed to "lime_old_[surveyID]_[timestamp]"
But this data is not accessible from Limesurvey itself. You have to use a tool like phpMyAdmin or TOAD or others to export these data.

But if you talk about the hosted version at LimeSurvey GmbH you should ask them. "Support / Contact"
