Document version history - limiting by date

  Asked By: Leo    Date: Sep 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1278

I know that you can change the settings on a document library to only
keep so many number of versions (major/minor). I have a situation
where we'd like to keep a version history based on Modified Date. If
an old version of a document was modified more than a year ago to
delete it. What would be the easiest way to accomplish this?

I would try an Information Management Policy. This might only work for the
major version  though, so you would have to test it. If that doesn't work you
would need to create some kind of recurring job or event handler. This is
doable, but probably won't be easy to accomplish  without custom programming.

I thought about using an Information Management Policy, but I think
that only works for the current Major version  of the document. I'm
guessing I'll have to go the custom programming route if I want to
pursue this.

An event handler would be easier, but would only fire when something was done
with the document. A custom timer job would work, but would be more difficult
to associate with a particular library.
