Hi.

 

I created a Retenion Label and its policy (as a test) to delte files in a spcific sharepoting folder 3 days after last moficied date.

after 6 days, the files are still in the same location and i can still edit them.

I was expecting the files will be delted from that folder after 3 days. Any ideas why it might not be working?

thank you
