I am trying to delete an old site in a SharePoint Online site collection. The site is completely empty apart from a default out-of-the-box "Microfeed" List which contains 0 items.
However when I try to delete this empty site, I encounter the "Sorry Something went wrong: The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator." error.
I am familiar with this error when dealing with Lists and Libraries which exceed the 5000 items threshold but I'm unsure as to why this is occurring when I am trying to delete an old empty site.
Does anyone have any ideas as to the cause of this/how to resolve this problem?
