Free space restrictions


  • Hi experts,

    One of our clients has a site collection that has over 1TB of data (archive). 

    I went ahead and deleted this site collection from the SharePoint Online Admin Center and the recycle bin by using Remove-SPODeletedSite. 

    However, the 1TB that was used for this site collection isn't released for my tenant.
    This means I cannot create a new site collection, because there is no more storage available.

    How long does it take to reclaim this storage, so I can start creating a new site collection and start migrating?
