Hi samtula,

Thanks for your question.

The Data Retention Forecast and Compliance Report displays information about the history of backup jobs, the media where the backups are stored, when data aging will occur for the backups, and recyclable media, based on the selected filter criteria.

If jobs are not being removed, there is a reason code in the report that will let you know why, including a clickable link to documentation that provides further explanation for each reason why data may not be eligible to be removed. Check out this video for basic troubleshooting for data aging and disks space issues.

Please let me know if this answers your query or if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
