Time or data limit with dataflow?

Hi there, I tried to refresh my dataflow and when I go to the refresh history it is marked expired. Is there a refresh time limit with the dataflow? Or is it my dataflow that has reached the allowed data limit?


My dataflow was running for 3 hours. I've got the licence pro.
