Do indices expire with starter plan?

I sat up an index few weeks ago, I got this error when I tried to fetch a vector

  File "/Users//opt/anaconda3/envs/rd/lib/python3.9/site-packages/urllib3/", line 785, in urlopen
    retries = retries.increment(
  File "/Users//opt/anaconda3/envs/rd/lib/python3.9/site-packages/urllib3/util/", line 592, in increment
    raise MaxRetryError(_pool, url, error or ResponseError(cause))

I logged in to my account and couldn’t find the index. do pinecone delete inactive indices?

Indexes of users on the Starter (free) plan are deleted after 7 days of inactivity. To prevent this, you can send any API request to Pinecone to reset the counter.
This is documented here.
