Is there a time that job report object "Store to" in the Agent tab on a job should be used either as store to database, store to agent, both, or neither?

How are the files maintained if stored to file?

This is largely up to the customer and what best fits your situation.  The documentation explains how each of these work, please see here: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/ALL/components/DOCU/12.3/Automic%20Automation%20Guides/help.htm#AWA/Reports/Reports_Jobs.htm

Most customers keep the reports on the database, sometimes on error only.  

If the logs are kept on the agent, there is no out of the box maintenance to remove files after they are finished being written to; so maintenance is up to specific company or organization needs.  Some customer on our community may have suggestions on preferred and suggested methods, some can be found in this post:https://community.broadcom.com/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MID=793520.

If the files are stored on the agent, they will be O* files in the out or temp directory.  These are safe to be deleted at your organization's discretion.
