With Maintenance Release 11.24.15, and above, the primary copy of the DR storage policy is converted to a WORM copy to prevent accidental deletion of data that is not qualified for aging. In addition, when you create a new DR storage policy, the default retention period is set to 15 days and 15 cycles. (The retention period for existing DR storage policies continues to use the existing settings and is not affected by this change.)
