How to back up SharePoint Online?

  • Trust Microsoft back-ups, as there's no way to make your own back-ups in SharePoint Online.
  • Rely on SharePoint recycle bin functionality for basic back-up/restore functionality.
  • Save important doc lib content via Windows Explorer view and store this info somewhere safe.
  • Use 3rd party providers that do support back-ups of SharePoint Online (there are providers who offer these services, but on this Wiki page no advertisements for commercial products are allowed).
