When backing-up Office 365 data, there are certain things that a user should keep in mind.
Types of Office 365 Backup
If we see from the technical point of view, then Office 365 backup can be done in two ways using this tool:
Full Backup: A full back up is performed to create complete backup. And it is the most sizable backup method.
