I'm wondering if anyone has some general advice on how long to keep 
checkpoints and journals around?

We have never needed a checkpoint or a journal except for server 
upgrades. When we started with Perforce 4 years ago we were 
checkpointing every night. Now we checkpoint once a week. Over the past 
20 months we have collected 20 GB of checkpoints.

Is there any reason to keep checkpoints that are over 12 month old or 3 
months for that matter?
