I'm trying to use retention on a document library. I configured a list and defined a retention policy to move the file to recycle bin after a day.

When I check in compliance details, I see that it should be moved to recycle bin but the expiration date is 2 days passed.

I go to Central Admin > Monitoring > Review Job Definition and changed to run every 5 minutes for testing without success.

Secondly, I can't find "Expiration policy" when I go in central admin > security and configure information management policy.

When I run in powershell console:

PS C:\Users\SharePoint> Get-SPTimerJob  | Format-Table -Property DisplayName,LastRunTime,Status

I see:

Expiration policy          1/01/0001 00:00:00                            Online

Do I forget something?
