Hello,

 

If I have a user that has been using OneDrive4B, but I wanted to remove access to OneDrive4B for a long period of time, will Sharepoint delete the site collection during clean up, or will it stay until account is deleted and 30 day grace period is up? 

 

I am aware of hold funtionality, but not sure that relates to E1 license, and am trying to ensure no data is lost, when disabling and later enabling licenses to SharePoint.

 

According to article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Assign-or-remove-licenses-for-Office-365-for-business-99759...

If you remove the license, it should start the 30 day countdown to purge - so the user can't access it but the manager will be able to.
