File Retention Period

The Deleted File Retention Period designates how long content is kept in the Deleted Files area before it is automatically deleted permanently. A System Administrator can adjust this setting in Administration > System > Settings. The retention period is set in days. In the example below (365 days), any deleted file will be removed after 1 year. All assets and database information related to the item will be removed from Ensemble.

The reporting feature now contains a content type called Deleted Items, which includes a list of content that has been deleted from the Media Library or Permanently Deleted.
