Recover Deleted Items in Office 365

By default, you can recover deleted items in Office 365 for 14 days. However, you can put a litigation hold on the mailbox which would increase the recoverable items up to a storage capacity of 30GB (Assuming you have Exchange Online Plan 2). And this doesn’t count against your main 25GB mailbox. Follow the steps below to recover them in OWA and your Outlook client.
