Retention protects business-critical files while helping Administrators comply with data retention laws, regulations, and contract requirements. Default retention policies set in Protect will preserve all files in Connect sources for a designated time. If multiple retention periods cover the same files, the longest of the retention periods will apply. Learn how to set up a default retention period below.
