    for two years/over two years

    The records maintained for two years.

    The records maintained over two years.

    I think, both sentences have same meaning. But I also think, I am wrong.

    Please help me on this.

    Re: for two years/over two years

    Each sentence is missing a tense carrying verb. Try,

    Ex: The records are maintained for two years.
    Ex: The records are maintained over a two year period.

    Both sentence carry the same meaning.
