Installed influxdb. Remove recorder from configuration.yaml?

I just installed influxdb. It is working fine. I have ordered a 512GB USB C stick on whch to store my expanding data.

My question is, should I remove the lines below from configuration.yaml?

> # Data retention
> recorder:
>   purge_keep_days: 30

It seems logical to remove the recorder configiuration statements now that I am using influxdb but I really would appreciate advice from those here with more than 1 day of expeience of influxdb.
