    over

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "over" in the following sentence:

    However, my camera was an auto-focus model, and I had never had a blurred picture with it over the three years I had used it.


    Does over mean 'for' or 'more than'?

    "over the three years I had used it" means "during/for the three years I had used it"
    He had it for three years, and over (during/for) that time he used it a lot.
