Lost or accidentally deleted an Office 365 email or file attachment? Office 365 will save your files for a period of 30 days in the Deleted Items folder, but in case it’s been more than that, you may not be able to recover your emails, contacts or documents.
To save data indefinitely, Office 365 admins need to enable Mailbox Litigation Hold for Exchange Online. If you lost data prior to enabling Mailbox Litigation Hold, you’re out of luck. This is why backup and disaster recovery applications such as the Cloud Backup for Office 365 from StorageCraft are the perfect solution for enterprise cloud apps management and BDR.
Cloud Backup for Office 365 from StorageCraft
With Cloud Backup for Office 365, you can easily recover your emails, calendars, contacts or files. The Cloud Backup makes management of Office 365 accounts much easier in a business setting. To recover an Office 365 object, all you need to do is:
- Log into your cloud backup account;
- Select the customer account that needs a restore;
- Go to the search tab and look for your object;
- You can search by document type, user, keyword, or a combination of these items;
- Find your item in the list of results and view the details;
- Restore your Office 365 object from your cloud backup.
You will have the option to do a bulk restore or a select object restore for the data you are looking for. The “Details” box will let you know if this is the item you are looking for or not.
The StorageCraft Cloud Backup will create a separate folder in the account’s Outlook (if you restored an email, for example), where the restored items are saved (StorageCraft Cloud Backup Restore folder). This way, you can easily find the data you restored – in the event of corruption or multiple emails with the same name, your data won’t get lost.
