Archive Aging Configuration

The Archive Aging Timer Job will evaluate defined aging rules against items within the scope of the profile and queue content for migration to the configured destination endpoint. There is no notification when a BLOB meets the aging rule definition, so this timer job should be scheduled in order to scan for content. To configure aging archive conditions, open the profile. See Configuring Archiving Rules for more information.

The Archive Aging Timer job is found on the Timer Jobs page, which is linked from the Profiles page.
