Legal hold is a part of the eDiscovery process undertaken in response to actual or prospective litigation. For information on how to leverage the CrashPlan platform for eDiscovery, see our eDiscovery Integration Guide.
This article explains how to place users' backup data on legal hold.
Step 1: Create a preservation policy
The preservation policy defines which files are included in the legal hold and how long to keep files under legal hold. Create a preservation policy that you can apply to different matters.
Step 2: Create a matter
In CrashPlan, a matter is the collection of all the custodians and backup data associated with a litigation. To put backup data on legal hold, create a matter, apply a preservation policy, and add custodians. Learn more about how to create and manage a matter.
