Mark for deletion

This function marks selected documents as deleted. Only documents marked as deleted can be purged from archive after their retention time (and eventually keep-alive time) is over. They will be COMPLETELY DELETED via the Delete Files job, if such is scheduled.

Documents that are not marked as deleted will be never purged (except you have defined Delete time for them).


NOTE: For more information on retention times see the section “Retention tab”.

1.Right-click the selected item in the search result list view and select Mark for deletion option from the context menu.

TIPS: Undelete feature of Archive Manager for Exchange allows user to list archived items that are marked for deletion in Outlook folder. If the Undelete feature is implemented, the user can perform Undelete operation on such items marked for deletion. After the undelete operation the item(s) will have the same status as regular archived items. Upon expiration of their retention time they will still reside in the archive.
