Description:  

This setting specifies the number of days a pending BITS job can remain inactive before the job is considered
abandoned. By default BITS will wait 90 days before considering an inactive job abandoned. Once a job is
determined to be abandoned, the job is deleted from BITS and any downloaded files for the job are deleted
from the disk.
Note: Any property changes to the job or any successful download action will reset this timeout.

Consider increasing the timeout value if computers tend to stay offline for a long period of time and still have
pending jobs.Consider decreasing this value if you are concerned about orphaned jobs occupying disk space.

If you enable this setting, you can configure the inactive job time-out to specified number of days.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, the default value of 90 (days) will be used for the inactive job
timeout.

Supported on: Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, or computers with BITS 1.5 installed.
