One reason to NOT leave a copy is: people take them. If it's just to see how someone else does this work, that's one thing but it could also be used as a template by a competitor. Another reason: people move things and don't put them back where they were found, so it may ne "lost" at some point.
Yes they can be lost, but that is up to the owner/client and I can't do much about it (but I do takpe the docs inside the equipment closet so there is less chance of loosing it, but if it does get lost that is the clients own fault.
I can see the "competitor" issue with config files (and we debated it for a while but decided to "trust" peoples integrity and if a competitor ever stole from us we would go after them) , but not for simple docs what will the guy steal? that cable H5 goes from device X output X1 to device Y input Y1?
but a master file for each client makes replacing these very easy.
agree we keep a copy of every install we do.
