The Folder Monitor
The Folder Monitor page allows you to configure the server to monitor a top level folder and subfolders for setting up a file retention policy.
You can configure a directory and subdirectories to be monitored for files whose last modified date is older than a specified time period. The directory will be checked at an administrator-defined interval, and files older than the specified age will be deleted.
