    Old issues automatically disappear?

      I have subscriptions to Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen magazines.  I just got the latest issues delivered.  I hadn't read the old ones yet.  I sometimes like to save them up for when I'm between books.  They weren't on my Nook any more.  I called customer service and was told that they are automatically removed when new issues come in to "save space".

      Shouldn't it be my choice how much space I want to save?  I had to sideload the magazines into My Documents and they were fine but I would prefer them to be in the B&N section where I have more control over what's going on as far as sorting, etc.

      Is there any possibility of making magazine archiving a user option so I don't have to sideload old issues whenever a new one shows up?  In my case, these magazines are only once a month and I'm sure don't take up much room.

      The other issue is that when Nook 1.5 comes out the old magazines won't sync to my Android phone like the new ones will.  I'm not liking this policy very much.

      Thank you.

          I just found the option on my Nook that says "view older issues".  It would have been nice if customer service had told me about that... :smileymad:

            You will still need to archive these older issues to keep them indefinitely though - there is a 10 issue limit before "auto delete" happens.

             

            The good news is that once an issue is archived and brought back, it is there forever until you delete it. It will not be subject to the 10 issue limit any longer.

                The user manual states that the number of issues saved is dependent on how often the periodical is published.  For example, the nook will save fewer issues of a quarterly magazine then one that is published monthly (the exact numbers can be be found in the users manual).  Just thought I'd point that out so no one thinks that they don't have to archive their magazines as long as they don't have 10 issues of it.  One more thing, I don't have any subscriptions but I've been told in another thread that if you haven't archived a periodical at least once before you cancel its subscription, the nook won't let you ever archive it and it will be deleted after a year.  Unless something has changed, this isn't stated in the users manual anywhere though.

                  That's an interesting thought.  So if I want all my issues to be available it almost makes sense to just make it a routine to archive them and restore them as soon as they arrive.  I can always re-archive them again later if I want.  Am I understanding this correctly?

                  IS there any way to get back the old issues that have disappeared?  I subscribe to knitting magazines and naturally want to keep them so that I can use the patterns at some future date.
