    Hi all, I'm in the midst of preparing a policy regarding data destruction which is required for ISO 27001 certification. How can I pen down the whole process on how commvault treats backup datas which past it's retention. I understand the backup copies will be aged, is there any documentation which describe the process? Also can the aged data still be recovered?

    The following documentation should help in describing the fundamentals of Data Aging - http://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11/article?p=11904.htm

    In relation to aged data and recovery, it will depend on the Media:

    • Tape - although the logical reference has been aged from Commvault, if the Tape is not re-use, you can technically unage the data. 
    • Disk - once Data Aging has aged out the Job, the Prune request will be sent to the MediaAgent, which will physically remove the data from Disk Storage. 
    Hopefully this helps
