What happens to deleted asssets info?

I take it, then, that deleting an asset would make a mess and shouldn't 
be done.
I am unable to locate "hide accounts". I've combed the possibilities, 
including all of the edit/preferences options, which seems the most 
likely. No sign of it. Could it be that it is not in 1.8.11?

Speaking of "preferences," I had "days to retain log files" set at 5 on 
August 8th and subsequently changed it to zero. All of the log files 
have apparently been retained since that date. It looks like manual 
deletion is the only option.

While I'm on a roll here... When I hit "reports" and move to "custom 
reports," nothing happens. A feature added in later version?

Very appreciatively,

Steve J
