I said above, I am hoping to get a technical answer whether it’s possible without an extreme amount of reengineering, not to justify it or get validation for a use case scenario.
But to come up with something that’s not relevant just for me, I’ll tie this with @happybeing’s comment: @nicklambert said the same in his post here , although perhaps he formulated that better:
At some time in the future it is envisaged the network will be able to detect such data and remove it from the network.
Let’s say I’d like that out of my 100 useless files (all 1MB large, to make it simple), certain files (say, 10) are less useless than the rest.
Now, since I already paid to store that stuff (and even if I didn’t) I may want to be able to ensure that when Autodelete kicks in, that the less useless files are not targeted first.
If I paid to store them and the SAFE net wants to delete them, I think it should pay me to delete any files.
Alternatively I could pay more for the storage of files that I do not want to have deleted even if they match criteria specified by Autodelete algo (say I’d be willing to pay a 5% premium per each additional year of non-deletion or whatever).
There are other scenarios I have in mind too.
