Why is Office 365 (Microsoft 365) backup necessary?

The robust infrastructure of Microsoft is accountable for providing a dependable environment to manage online data. But it does not take 100% responsibility for data protection.

Microsoft follows a shared responsibility model where it handles the Data Center, Operating System, Networks, and applications. It makes sure that the user data is available instantly. But it allows users control over accounts, access management, and other endpoint devices. In ransomware attacks, accidental deletion, or inside data breaches, the lost data will not recover. Hence, to be prepared for the worst situations like losing your precious data, you must take an offline Office 365 cloud backup of your Microsoft 365 account.

What manual Office 365 Backup offers

  • Saves smaller mailboxes securely.
  • Easy recovery after hardware and software failures.
  • Saves mailboxes with their permissions.

What manual Office 365 backup does not offer

  • Not suitable for oversized mailboxes.
  • No efficient recovery after natural disasters at data centers.
  • No protection from hackers, malware, and ransomware attacks.

Office 365 does not take a backup but replicates the user data to multiple data centers at different geographical locations. When a disaster occurs, Office 365 will retrieve the user data from the secondary data center with a 99.9% accessibility rate. But, if you follow the Service Licensing Agreement, the user is liable for the data lost from unauthorized access. So, it is better to take a constant backup at regular intervals with Office 365 Backup software.
Before starting the transfer, the Office 365 Backup software will allow you to select the location of the PST file according to your preference.
You should apply the date range filters and choose only new items. It will skip the older emails.
No, the Office 365 administrator can choose all the associated mailboxes in a single login and run multiple backup processes simultaneously. No additional attempt is required.

The Office 365 Backup tool can take backup of all the content, including emails, attachments, contacts, calendar entries, appointments, events and much more.
Certain unique and helpful filters like Folder, Date, Item type, Sender etc., allow users to save selective content according to their preference.
Office 365 holds emails in the user mailboxes as long as an active subscription plan is associated with the account. Also, the availability of emails depends on the organization's retention policy. For the Exchange Online account, the default retention policy is applied automatically. If you enable the archive mailbox, then the emails from the primary mailbox will move to the archive after 2 years. The admin can also change the retention policy and move the emails to the shared mailbox earlier.
Businesses must often keep mailboxes from certain employees even when they leave the organization. That's why the Office 365 admin keeps the in-place hold on such mailboxes, so they are not deleted completely. Such mailboxes remain in the database, but they are inactive. The user can run a content search using the Microsoft Purview compliance portal. It will be a keyword-based search that will look for critical data in the inactive mailbox.
To protect the mailbox from losing data, Office 365 uses a database Availability Groups feature to replicate it to multiple data centers. In a failure, when the primary mailbox is corrupt or deleted, data is retrieved from the other copies of mailboxes from different data centers. But it does not ensure that it will provide a point-in-time recovery. So, Microsoft strongly recommends using a third-party service or application to take the backup of Office 365.
If you have created Groups in Office 365 using the admin account, you can take a separate backup of it. When you input the Administrator credentials on the login page, choose the second option to 'List all mailboxes using above credentials' and choose the Get Group(s) option. It will select only groups present in the account. Later, the remaining backup process is the same as regular mailboxes.
Before taking a backup file, the Office 365 Backup software asks you to choose a folder where you can save the backup file. It also allows for creating a new folder.
The O365 Backup tool will create multiple PST files for each Microsoft 365 mailbox you selected for the backup. The name of the PST file will remain the same as the mailbox for simple identification.
The software provides a unique filter option 'skip previously migrated items (incremental).' Choose this filter and export only new data in the backup file.
