CloudConvert is made for converting files and is not a file storage provider. Because of this we had to do a little change in the API default behaviour. Up to now all input and output files of the conversions were stored until the conversion was deleted (automatically after 24h). This caused some problems for us: We had to store TB of files nobody used any more: In most cases the output files were already download or saved on Google Drive / S3 / FTP and there was no need to keep them on our servers any more.
To handle this problem we changed the API default behaviour to the following:
In 99% of all cases this fits for our API users and the change does not require any changes of your API implementations. Nevertheless there are cases in which you relay on the longer storage of the output files:
For these cases we added the new save parameter. If you set this parameter you will get the old behaviour back: All files are stored until the conversion is deleted.
