  • Hi,

    For disk based recovery points, the inactive protected data will remain as is forever since no new recovery points are being created.   Tape and Online recovery points have an absolute expiry date and will be deleted after the expiry date has been crossed.

  • Hi,

    I had a support call with Microsoft (on a different topic) but it did raise the question you have asked.  Apparently the 'inactive' protected data will stay there until you manually delete it.
