Office 365 backup services in Essex & East London
‘It’s in the Cloud so it must be backed up’ is a commonly held myth. The Microsoft Office 365 platform, along with most other well-known Cloud platforms, does not hold long-term backups of your data, email or otherwise.
Microsoft guarantee that the Office 365 platform will be available 99.9% of the time, and they use a global network of datacentres to ensure this. However this does not include taking backups of your data. There is a relatively short retention period, and that’s all.
So imagine, that important spreadsheet you’ve been updating for years suddenly gets corrupted & the only answer is to roll back to an older pre-corruption copy. How shocked would you be to discover there is no older copy available? This could be a reality for anyone who assumes Microsoft or other Cloud providers are diligently backing up their data.
However all is not lost. There are various options available to you for backing up your own Office 365 data.
