Microsoft Office 365 Backup Services

For Microsoft Office 365 users, a large chunk of your business data is tied directly to your Microsoft account. And if you’re counting on Microsoft alone to back up and secure your Office 365 data? You shouldn’t be.

What Does Microsoft Do To Protect User Data?

For users with an active subscription, Microsoft Office 365 preserves and retains many types of incoming, internal, and outgoing data, which you can access, extract, or delete with ease. If your subscription ends or is terminated, Microsoft will retain data stored in Office 365 in a limited-function account for 90 days. After 180 days, Microsoft will disable your account and delete all your data from the account. At this point, you won’t be able to recover it.

Even while your subscription is active, Microsoft only offers basic protection for your data. Creating and maintaining backup and recovery measures is your responsibility – Microsoft isn’t obligated to take those extra steps for you.
