I anticipate needing to keep a course more than 500 days and the export is limited to 30 days.  Please help.

@FrankUrban I think you are referring to message you see when you are on the import page.  Courses do not delete unless you or your institution deletes them.  I have courses that are 6 years old and I still use/access them. 

That message just means that Canvas will delete the export file and remove the download link after 500 days.

If I am misunderstanding your question please reach out.  Otherwise, hope this helps!
