Firstly, this process is potentially dangerous (as it can permanently delete all archived data if it is not configured correctly) and should only be carried out by Archive Administrators.
You can set the maximum amount of days that any data can be stored in Archive before it will be purged (permanently deleted) in line with data compliance policies (such as GDPR). You can set different values for Mail and Drive data.
To set the retention policy:
- Sign in to CloudM Manage with a user that has been assigned the Edit Archive Retention permission.
- Select Archive > Retention Policy
- Select Edit
- Edit the values for Email and Drive retention and ensure the option is selected.
- If you do not want to set a definitive retention period, select Indefinite Retention.
