Where does the purged data get stored?
All the purged records are archived and exported to CSV. Purged data is available for download from Archived menu. Purged data is stored in csv files in batches of 10000 records. If multiple files are created for a purge job, those many entries are shown for downloading, for a purge job.
The archived csv files are also stored in the default location, AE Home\Archivies.
The default purging destination is configurable. It can be set in AE_Home/conf/ae.properties by setting the configuration parameter
ae.archive.location = <Desired filepath(eg. D:/testPurge/Archives)>\
