OneDrive for business data retention post license deactivation

New Contributor

My client doesn't want his users to use OneDrive for business. 

They want to use Sharepoint on-premise. Unfortunately few of the users have enabled Onedrive as it was a part of Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise (formerly pro-plus) license bundle/pack.


As part of the remediation. 

1. The Officeonline and Onedriveforbusiness services have been disabled in the M365 license option and reassigned to the users.

2.The existing personal sites lockstate is set to no access.


Q: Some of the users had data in the onedrive sites. How long the data will be retained ? Will OD4B data deletion get triggered in this case ?
