How long are designers expected to keep client files?

A client recently emailed me asking for the source files from a project I did for them two years ago. I don't have the source files since it was such a long time ago and the client said it was very unprofessional and strange to not keep the source files for all the projects I do.Is there a customary length of time that you should be expected to keep source files? Should you keep all your source files for projects and never get rid of them?
