M365 Changelog: (Updated) Large Folder Delete on OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on Web
MC341151 – Updated June 10, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Currently, large folders (>10k items) cannot be deleted from OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on web. With this new feature, Microsoft will allow users to delete them. The process of deleting a large folder will be the same as deleting any small folder on the web today.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88979.
When this will happen:
Microsoft will begin rolling out in mid-March and expect the rollout to be completed by mid-July (previously late May).
Note: Some users may see this feature before other users within your organization.
How this will affect your organization:
Users will now be able to delete large folders (>10k items) OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on web. If a user tries to delete a shared folder that another user has already started deleting, they will see an error message, “This item is already being deleted.” Deleted folders will still be available in the site Recycle Bin.
What you need to do to prepare:
No action is required.
