Re: co question
Perhaps I don't understand your requirements. If in your example, a file is
backed up on the 1st of the month. Then the file is updated and backed up on
the 1st of the 2nd month, the 1st copy will become an inactive copy and the
newly backed up file will become the active copy. Due to the RETE parameter,
the inactive version will be kept an additional 30 days and then expired
since it's now been retained for longer then the RETE parameter. So actually
in your scenario an individual file will have technically been kept for 61
days - first for 31 days because it never changed, then kept 30 days once it
became inactive because it did change (the inactive copy.. active always
sticks around because it's the most recent version). However the settings I
provided would allow the user to be able to ALWAYS go back 30 days
guaranteed, and no file would really be older then 30 days.
You couldn't have files that are 30 years old as you suggest..
