Office 365 retention policy

Retention policies do two basic things: they either protect data from deletion or delete unnecessary items.

  • Retain content - content cannot be permanently deleted before the end of the retention period.
  • Delete content - unnecessary content is permanently deleted at the end of the retention period.

You can create and manage retention policies on the:

  • Policies page in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.
  • Retention page under Data governance in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.

For details, see

Litigation Hold

As an alternative to retention policies, you can place a mailbox on Litigation Hold to preserve all mailbox content, including deleted items and original versions of modified items.

On Demand Recovery Console Overview

The main screen, called Dashboard, is opened after you connect to your Azure Active Directory tenant. The user interface of the administrative console consists of four main screens:

  • Dashboard
    This is the main screen in the module. It is a source of all general information regarding current project status. You can view and open tasks from the Dashboard, view and manage available connections, view object charts and monitor recent errors. The toolbar provides links to most general tasks such as managing tenants, unpacking backups and browsing objects to restore.
  • Backups
    This screen shows a list of backups that were created for the selected tenant.
  • Unpacked Objects
    This screen contains all objects that were extracted from the selected backup and operations you can perform on them.
  • Differences
    This screen allows you to compare the current state of objects in live Azure Active Directory or Office 365 with their state in a backup and roll back unwanted changes. This helps when troubleshooting problems that may result from the deletion or modification of critical objects.
  • Events
    This screen provides you detailed information about errors and warnings that occur during backup creation and restore operations.
  • Tasks
    This screen allows you to view task statuses and manage them.
