Settings for Archiver data Retention

I am attempting to replicate an existing Storage Policy with some differences associated with Media Agents for the copies. There is a existing setting called Archiver data Retention with a setting of 63 days for certain copies, but looking at the Copy properties for Retention, I am unable to find that setting.

As a result, in my replicated Storage Policy, the default Archiver data Retention value is Infinite.

Do you know how to set the settings for  Archiver data Retention?

Which types of archiver agents do you have in use? I only ask as archiver retention is a legacy concept now and most agents have moved away from honoring the storage policy setting in favor of object retention configured on the subclient.

The clients are Exchange servers and the setup has been there for at least three years.


If it’s confirmed that Archiver data Retention is now a legacy feature, then this issue can be resolved.
