oh ,also in the whitepaper, page 8, it is said
          The Directory Block for that minute is constructed from all the Entry Blocks defined by all
the servers. So, each server has all Entry Blocks, all Directory Blocks, and all Entries.
   so I am confused very much.

Hello all,
   I want to know how many copies there are for an entry  in Factom.
   Based on the following proof,  I think there is only one copy on the its ower peer.
   1. In its website faq part, it is said" If you lose your document, you can not get it back from a hash stored in Factom."
  2. In the white paper, it is said "the Entries would only exist once on the Distributed Hash Table".
 However, someone says there are many copies for an entry in Factom network.
 
  Thank you.
