I'd like to know how I can hide (or disable) the retention warning that appears when somebody downloads a Microsoft Office document via Sharepoint, which is about to expire in the near future.
People in my company get confused by it.
In other words: When File X gets copied to a local hard drive, the expiration date of the new (copied file) needs to be reset.
Is that even possible?

i think what your looking for is irm, Information Rights Managment:

also

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh545607(v=office.14).aspx

for you its called retention:

the setup can be found on central admin within security under information policy and click on Configure Information Management Policy

but for the list/library in question you need to goto list/library settings, under Permissions and Management click on Information management policy settings and click on document, within there you should see some options, check to see that Enable Retention is unchecked!

EDIT

LOL I get you ;) the retention I understand is shown in office but regardless its been encapsulated via sharepoint xaml i belive to show that warning!

to remove it do the following:

goto central admin -> click on security and under information policy and click on Configure Information Management Policy now click on Retention, you should see two radio buttons:

Available for use in new site and list policies.

and

Decommissioned: Unavailable to new site and list policies, but still available in existing policies that use it.

by default Available for use in new site and list policies. is already selected. You want to select Decommissioned: Unavailable to new site and list policies, but still available in existing policies that use it. click ok and your all setup!

  • FYI: Retention must not be disabled. Only the warning in MS Office documents needs to be hidden. – RoWr Oct 23 '13 at 9:11
  • retention by default is unchecked not disabled! – Ali Jafer Oct 23 '13 at 9:20

  • In our company we enabled retention, because files NEED to expire. But when colleagues download a file to their personal hard drives the message "Warning: This files will be deleted in xy days" irritates them, so we just want to deactivate/hide/disable/whatever this message (ONLY AFTER the file is copied). The original file doesn't need to be changed. The warning kinda sticks to the file, which we don't want. – RoWr Oct 23 '13 at 9:54
