Document storage in SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know my question is very basic but i want to know . How long a document is stored in SharePoint. Is it stored for ever? And how about the versions of the document. Suppose a user wants to retrieve an old document, can he do it through Search option?

    Thanks!

  • Unless actively removed, of which there are automatic ways, the answer is infinity. Versions, too.

    The user, if they have the correct permissions, upon finding the documents can view the previous versions.
