Are you sure that file is set to the default management class for the
node? Maybe there was an errant include statement back when the file was
initially backed up that bound it to a different management class.

I recently had someone point out that when they were looking through files
backed up for their node (billing time!), they found a backup that is
INACTIVE and has been since 02/23/2012.  The file is an ordinary TAR file -
3.2GB in size.

The reason this is an issue is the Management Class for that node/PD is set
for *180-days* for RETO?

So, why would an expired/deleted backup not roll-off?

  Yes, EXPIRE INVENTORY runs automatic/daily (checked the logs for the past
2-months to confirm).

Server is Linux  (I have looked at the 6.2.4 updates and didn't see
anything that should effect/address this).
