Have you ever encountered a 403 error on a SharePoint site collection?
Personally, I am not able to reproduce this behavior. This being said, I already encounter this problem with one of my customers on a site's collection with data that cannot be lost.
I still haven't found the cause; however, the property of the sites collection that causes it is
Below, the SharePoint Online PowerShell cmdlet that allows unblocking the sites collection:
Set-SPOSite https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/traget-site -LockState "Unlock"
Here, the PnP PowerShell cmdlet that allows unblocking the sites collection:
Set-PnPTenantSite -Url https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/traget-site -LockState Unlock
Hoping this post will help you 😉
