Legal Hold

Legal hold, a compliance feature built into various online services and on-premises products, allows administrators to preserve items that might be required as evidence for a lawsuit or other legal matter by removing the ability for users or automated retention policies to delete content. The feature is also known by several other names, including in-place hold, litigation hold, preservation hold, and eDiscovery hold. Products supporting legal hold capabilities include Exchange Online, Exchange Server, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, and SharePoint Server.
