Office 365 Backups

Why do I need a backup solution for Office 365?

Whilst Office 365 offers fantastic resiliency with multiple copies of your mailboxes in redundant geo-locations, it offers limited backup & restore functionality.

What Office 365 Provides:

  • Protection against loss of service due to hardware failure or natural disaster
  • Short-term protection against user and admin error (Recycle Bin, soft delete)

What Office 365 doesn’t protect you against:

  • Accidental Deletion (If you accidentally delete an e-mail, you have only 14 days to recover it before it is permanently deleted)
  • Hackers, ransomware, and other malware
  • Malicious insiders
  • Departing employees (they may delete part or all of their mailbox or shared mailboxes intentionally)

That’s why Microsoft recommends third-party backup in the Service Availability section of its Services Agreement. (
