Hi Thom,

The Audit Log and Event Viewer have different retention policies.

- The Audit Log does not have a retention policy, and is kept indefinitely.
- The Event Viewer keeps the last 600,000 entries.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks!

Srish
