In-place hold vs Litigation hold (Exchange 2013)

A litigation hold is used for eDiscovery and puts a hold on the mailbox as a whole oposed to an in-place hold (introduced in Exchange 2013) that uses a more granular hold - by putting items on hold based on a search query, specific dates and so on.

A litigation hold can be created by enabling the LitigationHoldEnabled parameter on the user's mailbox:

Set-Mailbox -LitigationHoldEnabled $true

While an in-place hold can be enabled as follows:

New-MailboxSearch "Hold-CaseId002" -SourceMailboxes "" -InPlaceHoldEnabled $true

A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'StartDate'.
