You can override the retention period for backup sets by manually retaining them. When you choose to retain backup sets, Backup Exec prevents the backup sets from automatically expiring when their retention period is over. You can manually retain backup sets indefinitely.
If you no longer need the retained backup sets, you can allow them to expire. First, you need to remove the backup sets' retained status. Then Backup Exec expires the backup sets automatically according to the backup sets' storage settings.
See Storage options.
