I noticed that after changing retention to 6M from 1Y zrm completely ignores files older then 6 month during the purge process. I ran a report and noticed that most of the file still had retention info of 1Y. I run a simple script substituting 1Y for 6M in each of the index files and report now shows 6M everywhere. However purge still ignores older backups completely. Am I missing something is purge date set up somewhere else?

Never mind my previous post. After some playing around with different days, it looks like backups that done in January 2008 will start being purged in July 2008 and not in June as I expected. When I set 5M instead of 6M for certain jobs they got purged successfully.
