By Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center September 29, 2022
The USGS Sentinel-2 archive will soon be decommissioned.
The USGS EROS Archive will stop collecting new Sentinel-2 data on October 19, 2022. All Sentinel-2 data will remain available for download for 30 days. On November 18, 2022, all Sentiel-2 data will be removed from the USGS archive.
How to continue to access Sentinel-2 data after November 18, 2022? All Sentinel-2 data are freely available from the Copernicus Open Access Hub at https://scihub.copernicus.eu/.

Access to Sentinel data via download
The free, full and open data policy adopted for the Copernicus programme foresees access available to all users for the Sentinel data products. News and further information about the service is available here. The Copernicus Data Hub distribution service will continue its full operations until the end of June 2023 to allow a smooth migration to the new Copernicus Data Space Ecosystem by all user communities. As from July 2023 and until September 2023, the Copernicus Data Hub distribution service will continue offering access to Sentinel data with a gradual ramp-down of the operations capacity and data offering.
Access to Sentinel data via cloud
In addition to the download services, the Sentinel Data Products are available in the Copernicus Data and Information Access Service (DIAS) cloud environments. Each DIAS provides processing resources, tools and complimentary data sources at commercial conditions to further facilitate the access to Sentinel data.
