About retention of archived items
When Enterprise Vault archives an item, it automatically assigns a retention category to the item. The retention category specifies how long to keep the item. For example, your administrator may specify a retention period of five years from the date on which Enterprise Vault archived the items. Alternatively, your administrator may specify that the retention period ends on a particular date, such as December 31 2021, or even specify that the items are retained forever.
Enterprise Vault deletes items in your vault when their retention period has ended.
Your administrator can set up different retention categories for different types of data, such as Business or Legal.
You can use Enterprise Vault Search to find items in your vault that have a particular retention category. Depending on how your administrator has set up Enterprise Vault, you may be able to choose the retention category that you want to assign to an item when you manually store it in your vault. You may also be able to use Enterprise Vault Search to change the retention category that is assigned to an item in your vault.
