My scenario: I am using SharePoint Online. I have lot of projects that are represented as a folder in a library. some of those folders are no more in use and need to be archive(send to record center). I am looking for an automatic solution to archive folder based on the Last Modified Date + 3 years.

I have seen retention policy being used on content type but in my case i don't have any.

Retention policy would apply to items in the folder. I would probably try a flow workflow to fulfill your requirements.

  • Please explain the workflow? If i have Project A(Folder ),how do i ensure that a folder name Project(A) is going to be created automatically in the record center to store the archived items? Commented Jun 15, 2018 at 4:41
  • Create Flow, make a query that will only return folders that have items meeting your criteria, then you copy that folder over and delete the source folder. Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 13:25
