So the Directive "Purge Oldest Volume = yes" will ignore
retention settings on the volume?


Here is the relevant part from Bacula documentation:

"The Purge Oldest Volume = yes record in the Pool resource permits a
forced recycling of the oldest Volume when a new one is needed. N.B.
This record ignores retention periods! We highly recommend not to use
this record, but instead use Recycle Oldest Volume."

"The Recycle Oldest Volume = yes record in the Pool resource tells Bacula
to Prune the oldest volume in the Pool, and if all files were pruned to
recycle this volume and use it."
