eDiscovery Center SharePoint site

Occasional Contributor

As I am cleaning up unused and obsoleted SharePoint sites in the SharePoint Admin center, I am wondering if the site .../Sites/eDiscoveryCenter can be safely deleted (the site was automatically created by the system).

 

Navigating to the site, I get a message saying: "Creating new cases in the eDiscovery Center in SharePoint is no longer supported. You can create and use eDiscovery cases on the eDiscovery page in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center to manage your investigations [Learn more]".

 

Please advise, thank you.

You definitely don't need it around anymore if this is SharePoint online; the Purview solutions are the way to go. If there's no content (e.g. cases) in this legacy center, then you can safely delete it.
Thanks, it is always good to do some cleanup.
