Hi,

 

If we have an user leaving the company that OneDrive will be deleted eventually. During that time the manager has access to the OneDrive. If we change temporary owner of the OneDrive will the OneDrive still be removed after X number of days or will the change stop the removal process?

AFAIK,
The ODFB site will be removed after that period of time and there is not way to add additional time to that process. See general reference about this topic: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/add-users/remove-former-employee?view=o365-worldwid...
