      The default value is 3 years, and you can select a different value.

    • The list of existing storage targets in the organization that are in use for more than the number of years that you selected.

      For example, three libraries Library 1, Library 2 and Library 3 completed 1 year 3 months, 2 years 3 months and 3 years 3 months respectively. If you selected 1 year, then all libraries appear in the libraries list. If you selected 3 years, then only Library 3 appears in the libraries list.
