It can be difficult or impossible to restore Microsoft 365 information. After the 14 days standard content retention expires and a deletion has occurred it becomes irretrievable. Therefore, we recommend a third party Microsoft 365 Backup solution called N-ABLE for fast and flexible recovery for all elements of Microsoft 365. From just £3.00 per user per month.

*If you backup all of your licenced users, then SharePoint Backup is all included.
You may just backup a small selection of licenced users, in which case just the users Exchange and OneDrive will be backed up fully.

More reasons why Microsoft 365 Backup is necessary:
Native recycle bins and version histories are not true backups.

O365 Ex. Online provides high availability but lacks many options for customer controlled backup and restore.
Third Party O365 Backup tools provide recovery from internal threats and external attacks including expanded policies and retention periods.

Companies should consider investing in third party backup and recovery tools for faster, more flexible recovery options.

Even with Premium or Enterprise plans, it is still challenging to get data back as it was – Microsoft 365 is not designed to provide easy and fast restores of information.
