Maximum allowed O365 custom archiving policy

Occasional Visitor



I would like to know if is there  a maximum number of days/years allowed to set in a custom retention policiy in MRM ?


I have heard that the maximum the retention policy allowed for personal managed archives is 10 years, is that true? is there a restriction in place?

My recollection is that the limit is somewhere around 76 years. Here's an example of a personal retention tag to mark items to be kept for 50 years... I don't think any of us will be worried when this retention period expires. 50YearKeep.jpg


68 Years (24855 Days)

Highlighted says 24,855 days. I also have this documented in Chapter 19 of the Office 365 for IT Pros book, so I should have remembered it. In any case, it's long enough for everyone to forget.
