What would be a good standard data retention policy? I've just implemented a full backup strategy here including offsite backup to one of our remote sites, however I'm a bit puzzled on what to do with the data once the replication is complete. How long do I keep the archived data? 3 Months? 3years? Financial data is usually about 7yrs I'm guessing. Do I just delete the old Data or do I move it again somewhere else for older Archiving?
