So my question is... What happened to all the data on the volume?
You've saved several files on it, but none of them are visible in the
database any longer.

Unless you've explicitly deleted them (nsrmm -d -S <ssid>), then they
should still be in the database.

"the" retention policy?  Which retention policy?  Retention policies
affect client instances.  Without a saveset to associate it with a
client, there's no reason for an expiration date.

I think the savesets on here were prematurely deleted, but I cannot
begin to guess why that happened.
