In order to change it you need to change the retention tag.  Log into the Exchange Admin Center and go to the following:

Login > Compliance Management > Retention Tags, now you will the retention tag named 'Default 2 year move to archive', double click the tag in order to edit, once the dialog window opens just change the number of days from 730 which is 2 years, to 1825 which is 5 years and save it. Thats all you have to do. You may also want to change to the name to something like 'Default 5 year move to archive', in order to change the name just double click the tag again to edit,  and change the name and save

Thank you Tim, easy enough and thought it was something I overlooking. Should I open another question regarding retention policy rather than ask it here? Have one user that we're archiving data 5 years and prior. Should we add all the rules in the default and just change the 2 year archive to 5?

if you will be using the other tags also in that policy then just change that tag and leave it, but if you are not looking to apply all those other tags also, then create a new policy and add the new 5 year tag to that newly created policy.
