Reclaim Space On the Hybrid File Store


Retention settings are used to decide when the user deleted files and older file versions must be pruned or deleted. The files that do not meet the retention criteria are deleted from the media when you run synthetic full backups and data aging operations. You can restore the files using point-in-time views until you run a data aging operation. You cannot restore pruned files.

You can set the retention settings for the deleted files and file versions on the Hybrid File Store subclient policy. The retention rules are checked every 24 hours.
