Office 365 Backup

Organizations experience data loss due to a number of reasons such as human error, cyberattacks, insider threats, and/or hackers. Microsoft Office 365 has built-in some policies and protections, but it is essential that organizations implement a solution to further safeguard and easily recover their Office 365 data.


  • High availability 99.9% SLA is built into the Office 365 platform and the number one reason for data migrations from on-premises servers to the cloud.
  •  Retention
    • Exchange: 14 days, can be extended to 30 days, after deletion from the “Deleted Items.” If you have a subscription with Archiving and have implemented that specific service, retention is permanent.
      • SharePoint and OneDrive for Business file versioning will be retained up to the last ten saved versions of a file by default.
  • OneDrive for Business: If the file 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 file is deleted from within Windows Explorer, the deleted file will go to the local recycle bin the end-user has full control of.
  • SharePoint: If a file is deleted, it will remain in the online recycle bin for 90 days, then be permanently removed. Admin access is required to restore from the SharePoint recycle bin.
