HARPO is a time projection chamber (TPC) demonstrator of a gamma-ray telescope and polarimeter in the MeV-GeV range, for a future space mission. We present the evolution of the TPC performance over a five month sealed-mode operation, by the analysis of cosmic-ray data, followed by the fast and complete recovery of the initial gas properties using a lightweight gas circulation and purification system.
