Google Vault now supports new Google Sites. You can use Google Vault to set retention policies for Google Sites, perform searches of Google Sites data, and export Google Sites content. If you already use Vault to hold Google Drive files, sites files will now be covered by those holds. You can set Sites-specific retention rules if you want to manage sites retention.
Why it matters
This provides you with expanded control over your organization’s data, and can help you meet regulatory or legal obligations for your Google Sites data.
If you have Drive retention rules set to purge data after a retention period, sites will be purged according to those rules.
