Upgrade major versions in sharepoint Online

Copper Contributor

I have a sharepoint site that has a document with 500 major versions, and I want to limit it to 100 major versions. When updating the number of major versions, will the first 400 versions be deleted or will they be kept?

If they are removed, is there a way to recover those versions?

Thanks in advance.

Only 100 versions will be kept and the other 400 will be deleted. Unless you have some backup in place, no way to recover those versions

Do I understand that the 100 most recent versions will be kept and the rest of the older versions will be removed?
