How to Extend Datacap Sectors Expiration:

According to FIP0045, if you want to extend the DataCap sectors' expiration, you need to follow these two steps:

Step One :

The Client needs to update the TermMax of the Claim for every deal in the sectors:

lotus send --from <deal_wallet> --method 11  --params-json '{"Terms":[{"Provider":1836766,"ClaimID":13847890,"TermMax":3680640}]}' f06 0

Step Two :

The Storage Provider needs to extend the sector expiration:

lotus-miner sectors extend --extension=1555200  --really-do-it=true --drop-claims=true  --sector-file=[sector_file]

Swan's Extend Datacap Terms Service can help you with Step One, and the provider needs to perform Step Two.
