Hello Everyone,


I have an issue that womeone might be able to help me with.


I have 4 large history lists in my sharepoint. The largelest was newly mapped and created and already has 130k items. This is a productive environment.


I would like to know what would be the best ways to constantly purge data from there. I have set up a retention policy in the lists (Delete if created date > 14 days) but this didnt work out. Nothing was deleted. Would the best way to have a site workflow to be scheduled and delete the items?


I have also seen written that we shouldnt have any logs (log action or automatic logged activities like "Loop" or "for each") is this the best behavior? What if i need to troubleshoot an issue in Production?


Thank you in advance,
