    sorry about my bad english.

    We have problems about our storage. we have old jobs which not will delete about the data aging function. where can i check this ?

    we have set a retain time of 2 days, but we also see jobs from 2 weeks before.

    how can i check this settings to delete storage properly?

    we use snap_vault function.

    Hello Chris,


    Very sorry that it has taken this long for you to get a reply. If you are still curious, the best way to check why a job is still in retention is using the data retention forecast and compliance report.



    This will tell you why the job is still in retention, i.e. if it has not met basic cycles, days, not been copied to secondary media, or if it has been set for extended retetnion.


    I hope this answers your question!


    Kind regards

    Have you checked your Disk free space percentage? 

    You will find this under Storage resources, libraries, and right click your to-disk storage, properties, and go to the space management tab. 

    Here you can set you low watermark (%) and your high watermark (%). 

    Hope that helps.
