I am also looking for something similar.  I would like to be able to set a 30 day retention policy on a volume.  Any files that has not been touched in 30 days delete.

This is not possible with OM directly, but can be achieved, using the NHA, which give details about the file  last accessed and things.

Once this report is generated using NHA use dfm and NMSDK to delete those files from the volume.
