I have a number of books that are no longer available at Kobo UK. After a factory reset last year (to address a sync problem) I synced and successfully downloaded all of my Kobo books, including those that Kobo UK no longer offer. Also I have just checked my Kobo account and all of the books I 'purchased' (most were freebies) still show. So I do not understand why some people are having problems, perhaps it depends on the country of the Kobo store.

With both Kobo and Baen, I have purchased books that they no longer have rights to but they show in my account and I can download them. My Baen account goes back to the 1990's while my Kobo account goes back 2009.

The Kobo store has serious problems with edition management. Every time the publisher updates the cover image, the book gets a new page URL (title-1, title-2, title-3), a new release date, and all the reviews and ratings get wiped out. It's ridiculous. If you bought a book that gets updated like this, you will initially have access to the old edition in your account, but you won't be able to visit the product page anymore. It wouldn't surprise me at all if the old one simply vanishes from "My Books" after some number of years.
I just chatted with Kobo and my eBooks are all up-to-date. Nothing was needed to be done. I did double check two that previously came up as not available and they are available and one that has a version number and it's a later version number then the copy in my calibre library.

So maybe Kobo is giving the latest versions without having to ask for them to be updated.

I have no idea what is or isn't in my Kobo library. Too many to check, and no point for me.

I don't know everything in my Kobo Library, but I'm happy to know it's all up-to-date. I hope this is something Kobo has changed.

I rarely buy books from Kobo, they are generally more expensive than other places that I visit. But out of curiosity I logged on to check my library. It was empty!
Over the years I have bought maybe a dozen or so books from Kobo. In Calibre I don't register from where I have bought my books.
There was however one book that I remember having bought at Kobo. Looking the book up at Kobo I was informed that I had removed the book from my libray.
I haven't lost any books. I always immediately transfer my purchases to Calibre.
to restore

Edit: I discovered that there is an option to restore my items. However I dont remember ever having removed them.
