Like GenoMax says it depends on the setup of the individual facility. For a core lab or service provider it makes sense to keep all the raw data in case customers need to have their data re-processed. MiSeq Reporter requires that the instrument be idle and can take an hour or two to regenerate FASTQs while bcl2fastq can do the same thing in about 10 minutes on our server.
