Why legal hold?
With legal hold, you can preserve user backup data and avoid data deletion. When you keep a user on legal hold, the backup data for that user is excluded from compaction. inSync does not delete the data that the user backup up from any user device. Administrators can analyze the user data by using eDiscovery tools.

For more information about the Legal Hold user interface, see Data Analytics page.
- Legal hold preserves backup data, not share data.
- Legal administrators can access user data irrespective of the user's privacy settings.
- Legal administrators cannot access data that is stored on a disk space saving storage. As a workaround, change the storage for these users before they are added to legal hold. Legal administrators can access users data that is backed up to the new storage only. See, Change storage assigned to a user.
- If users are not removed from legal hold before the expiration of your Analytics license, those users continue to remain on legal hold.
