Allow Admin to delete files from the Preservation Hold Library folder
In case the big file is deleted (i.e. 1TB) from all recycle bins, it still takes this much space in the Preservation Hold Library folder. It would be great to be able to delete such file/folder at least by Global Admin. Otherwise, when the Retention Policy is set up for several years or never delete, even if the file is deleted there might be no room for the new files on user's OneDrive.
This should be for all sharepoint - not just OneDrive. Allow a global admin to selectively remove items in the 'Preservation Hold Library'.

This feature is critical! We already have several F1 users who cannot use their OneDrive at all, because the preservation hold takes up all available space.
I have the same issue!
900GB of my 1TB is used and I cannot free it up!!!!!!!
What's the point?
This is troubling. I have a client that has maxed out their 1TB of space. We do not have anything setup in data governance regarding OneDrive, we never had. The files where deleted from the OneDrive account and recycle bin but now they are held up in the Preservation Hold Library Folder. Microsoft is working on the backend to remove the files, not sure how this occurred, but it would be hand to be able to delete them as a global admin.
