This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi, here is my current expiry storage schedule. I am just wondering when backups are running would storage expiry deletes the messages? Is it good pratice not to run schedule storage expiry during backup window? We do full EV backup (storage, index, everything on weekends) and differtinal backup daily. We also backup index and monitoring database daily. Also, dark box in picture below mean exclude or include? Like for example all day Sunday storage expiry is running or it is not running?

what will happen is when you start your backups, EV will be placed in to back up mode, meaning no items can be added or deleted, they are literally read only mode, so the expiry will simply stop, when you come out of backup mode, if you're sitll in schedule, then storage expiry will kick off again, but start from scratch (it will not resume from where it left off)
