Can't see MARS backup points that should be there based on retention policy

AS 0 Reputation points


I am attempting to recover a file from a MARS backup, from a little over 3 years ago, where the monthly retention policy for the backup is set to 60 months (5 years), and the yearly retention policy is set to 10 years. However the oldest backup available is from 2 years ago, while the backup was initially configured in late 2017. Am I missing something in terms of the retention policy, or is there another step needed to obtain older backups?
