Office 365 Groups Backup?

Post by PariPari » Sep 28, 2017 1:25 pm

Hello,

I couldn't find any information about it, but is there a plan to support backup of Office 365 Groups/Teams and Project Online as well?
Cause only Exchange Online isn't enough for most companys.


Best regards

Hi Pari,

OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online have already been announced for version 2. Teams and Groups are under investigation. For project online we haven't started thinking about it. If we would deliver it in the future, how would you see the different items (teams/ groups/ project online) protected? And what recoveries would you like to see? How granular? What is the most common scenario where you would need a recovery?

Those questions could help us a lot in getting insight

Thanks
Mike

We would need this. We are an MSP and a lot of clients are smaller a prefer to use Groups/Teams over SharePoint Libraries. Internally we use them almost exclusively now with our SharePoint sites becoming a bit of a ghost town.

For recover the most import is files. After that it would be nice to be able to recover the conversations/emails and the whole group/team but as long we could get the files I would feel the backup has value. For the recovery it would be nice to have the options to recover the files either to a local location or back into the group/team itself.

It's worth noting that no one else can do this right now, I've looked. It would be a great way for Veeam to differentiate itself from everyone else if they could add this.

Hi,

Im currently testing the beta and I ran into a problem when backing up groups. We currently have 3750+ groups , and more to come, but the Veeam beta only lists the first 1000 it can access, and I think its an result of the output below.

"PS C:\Users\USERNAME> (Get-UnifiedGroup).count
WARNING: By default, only the first 1000 items are returned. Use the ResultSize parameter to specify the number of items returned. To return all items, specify "-ResultSize Unlimited". Be aware that, depending on the actual number of items, returning all items can take
a long time and consume a large amount of memory. Also, we don't recommend storing the results in a variable. Instead, pipe the results to another task or script to perform batch changes."

Best regards
Markus
