    It’s recommended to refer to the suggestions mentioned by Jesus Shelby in .

    There is also third party backup tools like Veeam you can refer to.

    Hope it helps.

  • The first thing I would do (and you might have gone through it already) is to identify what data (1) you want to protect, why you need it (2), for how long you must keep it (3), and how long can you wait for the data to be recovered (4). Then I would move to the possible solutions.


    For example, let’s say you need to give the users the ability to recover e-mail data (1). Just because they tend to delete things they are not supposed to (2). If your policy states that you have to provide the users with that ability for data deleted within last month, all you have to do is to configure the deleted items retention for 30 days and teach the users how to do it.


    Now if you have to keep the data for longer periods, such as 5 years (3) for legal/regulatory reasons (2), you can use in-place hold. In-place hold requires E5, E4, E3, Exchange Online Plan 2 or Exchange Online Archive add-on.


    If you answered the questions and still think you need a backup solution, you should consider a third party solution.

  • You can also use SysTools Office 365 backup and Restore Software. Well, this a cheap solution but this does not provide cloud to cloud backup instead it gives you the option to Backup Mailbox on Your local machine and restore it back whenever you need it.

  • Today we pay third party software solution ONLY for Backup of Office 365 data. It would be great to integrate Office 365 with our existing Backup and or System Center Data Protection Manger solution. This was asked earlier and a lot of customers like to have this feature in existing Microsoft Backup Solution to protect Office 365 data for longtime protection. visit at :
