  • Why would you want to do that?  It's their own company-managed storage location; the whole point being that it's for their own storage and collaboration on company information. 

    If you want to restrict what they can do to anything, you should set up special collections for them to use that have different permissions based on their role.

  • You should be able to create a retention policy such that, even if they delete a document, it is still retained in a way that can be retrieved.  Unfortunately it's not an area that I'm too familiar with, but I know it's do-able.

    I found a SharePoint Conference 2014 session recording that goes into retention policies in SharePoint, including OneDrive for Business:

    What's new with Document Retention in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business

    Hope this is helpful,

  • Hi,

    I guess there is some ITIL process GAP in your organization, What i can suggest is, perhaps you want to create your own IT security framework to deal with users who have already left the company from deleting the files.

    one of the few steps, if they are join to a company login account, the moment on their last day of work, you can implement their account to be disable, so i am assuming if the cloud services are federated with your on premises directory. Hope this explains ?
