...unless you resubscribe or backsave the files to a version you have a perpetual license for. This is not terrifically hard to do using Extendscript for large numbers of files.
Presumably you could subscribe for a year, then start a new subscription sometime later and have access to your files. Here's how perpetual licenses have been treated in the past. I haven't heard of changes. Updates are pushed out to you (via notification that they are available) and can be triggered from the menu system using Help > Updates... You are NOT required to install them. Version upgrades are available as free upgrades if released within 30 days of purchase (at least for individual users). This may not be true for corporate or academic license purchasers. Subscription users get all upgrades (at least that's the way Creative Cloud works) and can decide to install them or not AND can retain older versions on the system as well. So you aren't bumped up to a new release and HAVE to use that release. You can use the older one(s). This is nice for consultants who require specific versions for specific customers. I have advocated to Adobe that given the FM world out there, new users ought to get access to all previous version licenses they might request for use on a single machine. Thanks.
