Please note that the data of a O365 backup is not the same as a backup of VBR. The data is stored in an online database (Jet DB) and not stored as passive files.
What is currently supported as a repository is:
- Local (internal) folder of the backup server (default target).
- Direct Attached Storage (DAS), connected to the backup server, including external USB/eSATA drives and raw device mapping (RDM) volumes.
- Storage Area Network (SAN); backup server must be connected to the SAN fabric via hardware or virtual HBA, or software iSCSI initiator.
- SMB 3.0 share (experimental support); backup server’s computer account must have write permissions on the network share.
