The Run Snapshot Policy Retention Rules feature is used to force a snapshot to look for records that should be deleted from the Snapshot based on its retention rules and then delete the records. This happens automatically for active Snapshot Policies as part of the regular CopyStorm backup process, so this feature is most useful for inactive Snapshot Policies.
The Run Snapshot Policy Retention Rules feature is accessed from the right-click context menu on the CopyStorm Snapshot tab.
There are only two parameter options when running retention rules.
- # Search Batch Size — number of records that will be searched at once for potential deletion.
- # Deletion Batch Size — number of records that will be deleted in a single database transaction.
