Exchange Policy Set: retention times


Good Day Folks,

I've been trying to read up on and understand how TSM does versioning through the policy config but for the life of me I dont understand the logic. Our systems was originally configured by someone else and just want to better understand retention as simply as possible.

I read a few good articles but still not understanding my config.

Would someone be so kind to confirm how long I am retaining data with my settings listed below?

Exchange Daily_Incremental policy is currently setup like so:
Versions exist: 30
Versions Data Deleted: 30
Retain Extra Versions: 90
Retain only version: 90

Exchange Monthly policy is configured as:
Versions exist: 10
Versions Data Deleted: 10
Retain Extra Versions: 365
Retain only version: 365

Exchange Yearly policy (yearly backup to keep 7 years archived) is configured as:
Versions exist: 1
Versions Data Deleted: 1
Retain Extra Versions: 2,555
Retain only version: 2,555

Thanks in advance !
