Remove document revisions from Preservation Hold Library

Copper Contributor

Good morning, 

We have a user that has one document that they used as a template.  The document includes high-res images and now the user's OneDrive folder is full - this one file is taking up 34.4 GB of space. It appears that since this is located in the Preservation Hold Library that there's no way to remove the file other than change the retention policy, which would impact all users. Is there not a way around this to just remove the file revisions? I'm not a Global Admin on our SharePoint system, so my access is limited. We have a hybrid environment and most of our documents are in the cloud. 


Let me know if there's any additional information needed.
