Hello, long time listener, first time caller.

I am confused about the difference and crossover of retention policies and the 1st and 2nd state deletions in SharePoint-365.

 

I have a retention set for SharePoint sites that is set to keep content forever. I have checked and I have a "preserved" folder under site contents. I have read conflicting info about whether the retention will override the 93-day SharePoint deletion cycle and I need to get clarification.

 

Does the retention policy override the default 93-day deletion cycle in SharePoint? I need to make sure things are going to disappear after three mounts and three days.

 

Thanks in advance,
