How long are you keeping courses around in Canvas?

We've been on Canvas for almost three years now and we haven't deleted anything.  We've almost reached our quota and so we must decide to purchase more space or start deleting.  I'm just curious how other institutions are handling this.    When we had Blackboard, we only kept courses around for 2 years because we were self-hosted and didn't want to pay for the additional storage.  Now that we are on Canvas, we intended to keep courses around longer - especially since we allow students to access the concluded courses. 


We've inquired w/Instructure about an archiving solution.  I think it's something they have discussed but have not necessarily made a priority.


What's your school doing?
