The use case is related to NDA which we have with several of our customers, which demands upon request the deletion of confidential data on our computers. Normally there is an exclusion that this does not apply to backups. Sometimes my colleagues forget to negotiate properly or there is absolutely no room for negotiation from our customer side.
If data of such projects would be stored on our normal server system, they would be backed up. For a normal backup chain they will be "deleted" from the backup system once the retention period is over. This will be however not the case if a backup copy job in between creates a GFS copy (monthly, quarterly, yearly).
