I have a SharePoint site and I have activated the Site feature (Go to Site Actions => Site Settings => Site Actions => manage Site features) "Hold and eDiscovery".
I have two items in the "Hold Reports" (Go to Site Actions => Site Settings => Hold and eDiscovery => Hold Reports).
We are going to retrieve these items using powershell.
Go to Start => All Programs => Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products => SharePoint 2010 Management Shell => Run as an administrator. => Run the following script.
$site = get-SPSite("http://serverName:22222/sites/Test/")
$web = $site.RootWeb
write-host -f green "HoldsReportList: " $holds.Title
foreach($item in $holds.Items)
