Phoenix Editions: File:/cross.png Business File:/cross.png Enterprise File:/tick.png Elite

Retention period defines the time period for which you want to retain the data on Phoenix CloudCache. Beyond this retention period, Phoenix CloudCache frees up space by removing the non-referenced data. The amount of the space that Phoenix CloudCache frees depends on how frequently the files are changed.

Note: If you change the retention period, the updated period applies to all the existing as well as new snapshots.
