How long before the super-secret transcript server is found dead of suicide with its guard on a smoke break and a security camera "malfunction"?

1. How long before we find out that

Putin, MBS and Kim Jong-un have the username and password to the super secret server.

4. She sure does!

And those who were tasked with looking in on it every 15-minutes-or-so were nowhere to be found.

6. It's not that easy to get rid of electronic documents.

Servers are routinely backed up in several ways
There are nightly backups of anything new that was placed on them that day.
Also periodic full backups of the server are made.
These backups are stored in at least two separate locations.
One is local to allow for a quick restore in case of a main server failure.
A second backup is stored off site to protect against a catastrophic event in the main server location; such as a fire.
All of these backups are discrete; new backups don't overwrite old ones.
So, the electronic documents in question exist many times over on at least two backup servers and possibly even a deep storage third server, besides the main server.
Remember, the main server is used for very sensitive, very important information that the intelligence community does not want to lose.
It is carefully protected.
It would take a lot of work to completely erase all of the copies of the documents in question.
It would also require permission from system owners; most definitely in writing since this is on a high level security system.
The system administrators would also have to agree.
There would be a lot of physical documentation and electronic fingerprints to go through the process of purging records from such a high level security system.
It would be a criminal act, and a career ending event for anyone involved with destroying this information, especially after the House issued an order to preserve all pertinent documentation.
I worked as a System Administrator for a Pharmaceutical Company and I know what it took to remove information from the system I managed.
And that is nothing like what would need to be done to remove records from a server like the one in question.
The documents are probably safe.
The real issue is getting access to them.
