Journal Expiration not deleting Files
Windows Server 2008 R2
When I setup Journal archiving I failed to set the expiration policy on it for 2-3 months. I corrected the problem and now items are being expired after 1 year in accordance with the policy. I know items are being expired because I'm getting event ID 7085 showing thousands of items deleted. However, when I browse to the journal directory (E:\EVdata\vsg1\journalvs1\ptn2\2012\10-01 through 11-07) the files remain? Aren't these files supposed to be deleted according to the 1 year expiration policy? We have some litigation hold going on as well. How would one elegantly remove these files?
