Will Preservation Hold Library be removed after excluding a site?

Frequent Contributor

We have a 5 year retention policy that includes OneDrive. In order to help a user clean up his OneDrive, I want to exclude his site from retention until he is done. Will the exclusion mean that his Preservation Hold Library will be removed?

@Vasil Michev In some cases I exclude a site from the Retention Policy temporarily in order to be able to clean-up the site, typically when users have no more storage left on OneDrive. In those cases I would want to clear the Preservation Hold library. Can I simply delete the contents?

I'd be surprised if you can, even if the holds removed. That would invalidate the purpose of the Preservation hold library.
