Do low sec belts only respawn Friday/Monday still or was that changed to daily like HS?

For years low and null only respawned on Friday/Monday. Was wondering if this was ever changed.

Can't say anything about low, but as for null, rocks seems to slowly respawn over time, not on a set timer.

Cleaned all the mercoxit out of a belt one day, came back the next and there were 2-3 rocks that had popped up over the duration

My understanding is that this is how it works …
When somebody commences a warp to a virgin belt or ore site, a timer starts ticking.
The belt / site will respawn either:
- At the downtime after it was cleared of ore completely; or
- At the conclusion of the time.
I thought it was a 4-day timer but do not know where that memory came from.

I guess I am almost a 'vet' by now. Hopefully not too bitter and managing to help more than I hinder. I build and sell many things, including large collections of bookmarks.

I know for a fact that the 4 day timer is for belts in wormholes. When someone warps to the belt, a 4 day timer starts and will despawn after that 4 day timer is up.

I would warp to all of the belts in wormholes while scouting just to make them despawn. I am evil like that.

As for nullsec and lowsec, I have never mined there so no clue.
