Currently large folders (>10k items) cannot be deleted from OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on web. With this new feature we 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.

Users will be able to delete large folders (10k items) on OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on web.

MC341151: Large Folder Delete on OneDrive and SharePoint Document Libraries on Web

Affected Workloads

  • SharePoint Online
  • OneDrive for Business

When this will happen

We 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.
