Exchange 2013 Archiving


I created an Archive Databse and enabled it for myself as a test, I then opened outlook and could see that the Archive - username mailbox existed.

then I noticed mail etc automatically moving into there and also retention policy (somewhere) deleting mail.

I thought by default this was a manual drag and drop thing, where can I change the retention policy for the archive database?
