With Office 365 and Office 365 recovery, users get all of the capabilities offered by Microsoft Exchange on-premises, like OneDrive and SharePoint, along with the added benefit of accessing their data from multiple devices. Team collaboration is streamlined, as users can see edits happening in real time. Office 365 offers users easy access to data and boosts productivity, but, of course, it also has its drawbacks. There’s a common misconception that data created and stored in the cloud is automatically being backed up. The truth is, data can easily be lost.
Common causes of data loss in Office 365 include:
Human error (e.g., accidental deletion)
Viruses (e.g., malware, ransomware)
Hard disk or storage damage
Fear not though! Data can be recovered.
Office 365 Recovery
If you’ve migrated all of your data over to Exchange Online, the hosted version of Microsoft’s Exchange Server, you have a few Office 365 recovery options should data loss occur.
Deleted Items + Recovered Items
The Deleted Items and Recovered Items folder give users the ability to easily restore emails that have fallen within their retention period. The default retention period is 14 days, but administrators can increase it to a maximum of 30 days.
Files living in either the deleted or recovered items folders are the easiest to recover with the click of button. Single or multiple items can be selected at once.
Archive Mailbox Recovery + Request Email Restore
If you enable the archive feature on your core mailbox, deleted emails can be archived and restored as needed. Administrators can also apply Message Records Management (MRM) policies to a core mailbox. MRM allows admins to set retention longer than the default value mentioned above.
Items that fall outside the retention period will not appear in the archived folder and require a support call to Microsoft. Microsoft’s support team will then restore the mailbox data as needed.
