How a hold works in Sharepoint 2007

By default, every Records Center site has a Holds list that records managers can use to create and manage holds for events such as litigation, audits, or investigations. You can create a new hold for a specific event by adding a new entry to the Holds list. The Holds list provides tools for finding and holding relevant records, viewing records that are currently on hold, or releasing a hold when it is no longer required.

When a record is added to a hold, its hold status is updated to indicate that it is on hold, and Office SharePoint Server 2007 prevents this record from expiring or being deleted. After records are added to a hold, they are typically reviewed by the legal staff within an organization to determine whether they are relevant to the event that prompted the creation of the hold. Individual items can be removed from a hold if they are determined not to be relevant.

An organization can have multiple holds in effect at one time. It is also possible for one record to be added to several different holds. If a record is put on multiple holds, it is suspended from its original information management policy until all of the holds to which it has been added are released.
