A Complete Guide to Office 365 Backup

Organizations experience data loss due to several reasons such as human error, cyber-attacks, insider threats, and/or hackers. Microsoft Office 365 has built-in some policies and protections, but organizations must implement a solution to further safeguard and easily retrieve their Office 365 data. Wise businesses trust Azure Data Backup Solutions to guard them against losing necessary data. A third-party Office 365 backup and recovery solution helps mitigate damage and recover quickly from O365 data-loss events.

Office 365 Standard Data Protection Features

  1. High availability 99% SLA is built into the Office 365 platform and is the number one reason for data migrations from on-premises servers to the cloud.
  2. Retention
  • Exchange: 14 days, which can be stretched to 30 days, after deletion from the “Deleted Items.” If you have a subscription with Archiving and have executed that specific service, retention is permanent.
  • SharePoint and OneDrive for Business document versioning will be retained up to the last ten saved versions of a file by default.
  1. OneDrive for Business: If the document is deleted it will remain in the online recycle bin for 30 days, then be permanently removed. If you are syncing OneDrive for Business with a Windows 8.1 or 10 computer and a document is deleted from within Windows Explorer, the deleted company file will go to the local recycle bin the end-user has entire control of it.
  2. SharePoint: If a company vital file is deleted, it will remain in the online recycle bin for 90 days, then be permanently removed. Admin access is needed to restore from the SharePoint recycle bin.
