When a lawsuit is filed, it can be challenging to ensure the necessary custodian data is preserved. Many teams collect all a custodian’s data upfront or make a copy of their hard drive, which can be resource-intensive.
With Relativity Legal Hold, administrators can now preserve a custodian’s Microsoft Office 365 data, including Exchange mailboxes, OneDrive files, and Skype for Business conversations.
With date filters, you can preserve data from a specific timeframe, and it will be preserved until the hold is removed. Custodians won’t be notified about the preservation.
The new preserve-in-place feature mitigates the risk of data loss, prevents the need to over-collect, and provides a defensible way to preserve data during a litigation hold.
The ability to preserve data from additional sources, including Microsoft SharePoint, will be available in upcoming releases.
