Keep tenant data even after deprovisioning of all subscriptions
If you had an O365 Subscription and had a lot of work done and saved on Sharepoint/Onedrive you would know how detrimental it would be if you lost that data.
Why is the data deleted once the subscription is deprovisioned? Why isn't the data just stored indefinitely?
A suggestion would be to start permanently holding tenant data even after the deprovisioning of the license so that in-case someone needs that data, they can re-purchase subscriptions and get all their data back.
Or at least add a service where someone could be able to pay a fee to recover data in such scenarios.

I was on the phone with the Fake News Office 365 support today and they told me I can't recover my data after The Russians stole it from me and gave it to Fake News CNN. I had no choice.. but to cancel my subscription with their terrible product. Absolute losers!!! They will not be around for too much longer.. Believe Me!!
I wasted my whole day with support trying to recover my data, I would expect a company like Microsoft to have the capability to retrieve my data if necessary...

Why is this not mentioned when we created our account? if I knew that this is the case i wouldve went with google
We allow our data to be uploaded to the cloud just to then have it thrown in the trash! Isn't the cloud suppose to help us store more data??
I'm so triggered right now...I just lost my data for over 300 users

When my business was hacked I was forced to change tenant....this was a long and terrifying process. My account was deprovisioned by the time everything got settled and now I've lost all my business information.
Without any way to connect to my customers how am I suppose to start my business again???

HOW DO I GET MY DATA BACK?????
please microsoft do this , i want to have my data saved for ever
I have always wondered the same thing!!!
What if I decide to come back to O365?? I should have a right to purchase my own data back!!!
Microsoft is rich enough to save our data for ever , if facebook can do it for free they can too
I recently suggested the same thing to O365 support after spending more than 5 hours on the phone with them. I can understand from the Microsoft point of view that they must find efficient ways to manage their data, but if I am willing to pay big dollars to have it stored on their servers while my tenant is deprovisioned shouldn't that be an option ?????
