We have a mailbox that  has been on hold for 3 years now.

 

1. What happens to Litigation Hold data of Litigation Hold is turned off?

2. Will the 3 years data in hold still be recovered if Litigation Hold is turned off?

 

Thanks

That depends on many factors, where exactly is the data located, is it in the main mailbox or under the recoverable items subtree, do you have any retention policies in place, etc. Also, what exactly do you mean by "recovered"?

data is in mail mailbox and in recoverable items and in archive


what exactly do you mean by "recovered"? -mail can be searched or exported using ediscovery

Any data stored in the Recoverable items subtree will gradually start aging out and be eventually permanently deleted if all the holds are removed from a mailbox.
