I might be missing something here, but Mike is correct - such functionality is already available (while it, indeed, may require some manual work to configure the job).
When you expand the Personal Sites node on the exclusions screen, the checkboxes for each personal site will be available. You can check mark all the personal sites, which you would like to exclude from processing.
Another way to add team/group sites only to a backup job is to select them on the Select items to backup screen: Backup the following items -> Add -> Sites -> select the required sites from the list.
I have 1650 students, I'm not ticking that many boxes one by one.

@jandre, you don't need to. There is a hierarchy (I don't have a screenshot available at this moment) that allows you to exclude the "personal sites" at a root level.

Here's my screenshot *waits 10 minutes for all the sites to load*:

Notice the lack of tickbox next to Personal Sites. This is 2.0.0.954.

Jandrewartha,

It does take some time to resolve sites due to the under the hood processes, and this is something which cannot be speeded up at the moment.

I'm also adding sites multi-select option and [possibly] root-level select as enhancements to add in future releases. Thank you for pointing us to this!

My work around for the lack of tick box at the root level was to do a search for "(tenant name here)-my". This will bring up all of personal sites, and then there's a check box in the top left corner in the Title column you can check to select everything. The downside to this method is any new users you create with OneDrive for Business accounts will have to be checked manually.

It's not pretty, but for the short term it works.

Simple but smart workaround. Thanks for the tip Crandall!

Not knowing all the O365 options and capabilities.

I too have a customer that utilized OneNote via O365. Does OneNote only store data in the user's OneDrive service, or does the OneNote data get stored elsewhere?

If OneNote data is stored in OneDrive, then I can relay that OneNote is covered, else do we have a timeline for when OneNote will be able to be protected as well?

Michael,
OneNote data is stored on the OneDrive service and yes, we are backing that up

Just wanted to chek in after some time. So still the same situation = no ability to licence / back-up just selected users (Exchange, OneDrive) and Sharepoint sites? Do we still need to license all our tenant users?

Hi Petr,

Licensing has not changed. It's a per-user licensing to protect personal data (mailbox/archive and OneDrive) and licensing each user that has been granted access to SharePoint sites to protect those sites. You may want to check the updated documentation for more information.

Thanks!

What does it mean that "Each SharePoint user in your Office 365 subscription (or On-Premises deployment) that has been granted access to the SharePoint sites needs to be licensed to back up and protect your SharePoint environment."?

Does it mean, that if I have E1 and E3 users and I assign them E1 or E3 licence, has effectively gained access to Sharepoint, and hence you simply license per the number of licensed users in a tenant? Or does it mean, that you search thru sites, check the access rights / groups, count the users there?

Petr,

It means this: If you want to protect a certain sharepoint site, then indeed you need to know how many users have access to that. I do know that this isn't that easy and we are thinking about better ways but no resolution at this moment

In the license sections of the docs it states:
Microsoft SharePoint Online or On-Premises SharePoint
Each SharePoint user in your Office 365 subscription (or On-Premises deployment) that has been granted access to the SharePoint sites needs to be licensed to back up and protect your SharePoint environment. If you have a hybrid SharePoint deployment (On-Premises SharePoint and SharePoint Online), and the same user has access to both, only one Veeam license is required for such a user.
It then states:
A license is not required for:
Group SharePoint sites.
What is the difference between a group sharepoint site and a site that grants access to multiple users where each user must be licensed?

This doesn't seem very clear to me.

Thanks!

Willey,

A regular site is one which is in the hierarchy of SharePoint. A group site is an automatic site that is being created whenever you create the group. It allows you to store documents specific for that group and is always attached to an office 365 group.

Cheers
Mike
