I want to set the retention policy for Teams Files.
As I know, I can set the policy for SharePoint Site and OneDrive for business.
I want to delete the files which belong to Teams.
How do I choose the SharePoint sites and the OneDrive accounts in the setting.
Thanks in advance.

It is a Microsoft Tech community blog Post!

Thanks so much for your reply.
We want to make sure if we set the retention policy for the OneDrive account, will all of the files (some belong to Teams and some not) in OneDrive for Business be deleted or just the files (chat file) belong to Teams will be deleted.
We want to set a policy that just deletes the files belong to teams and have no effect on other personal files.
Thanks so much.

My understanding based on this article was that Teams files get covered by the Microsoft 365 Groups location. Your guidance seems to indicate that they get covered by the SharePoint location (as is indicated in a few other places such as this). I know the features and guidance keeps evolving so mayb e it has changed since this post was published.
Any chance you can confirm your understanding of what location should be used for the Teams files?

Yeah it keeps changing :D
At the current time,
- Files in Standard Teams Channels in Microsoft 365 connected teams are covered under Microsoft 365 Groups
- Files in Private Channels are covered under SharePoint (think of this as SharePoint Sites not connected to Microsoft 365 Groups)
- Files in Files App > OneDrive are covered under OneDrive
Did a blog earlier this year to clear up the confusion
Hope that makes sense :D

Thanks @Christopher Hoard! Sorry I am just getting to the last message. Yes, that made sense and I verified that through my testing as well :)
