Data Collector Retention period

When does viewpoint Kick off Data Deletion for Data Collector. I had the collectors configured to retain 6 months of Data. After 5 month of data collection ran into space issue and decided Change data retention for some of the collectors to 3 months. Made the change and restarted the DCS services. I was hoping when the services restart the new settings will take effect and will start deleting the data. It's been few hours and I haven't seen any change.

There is no scheduler for this, Does anyone know when does viewpoint actually kick off Data Deletion.

I couldn't find anything in the documentation.

The DCS cleans up collected data once a day, at 11:50 PM.
