In Episode 369, Ben and Scott explore the new Backup and Archive options for Microsoft 365 and Office 365 workloads – Microsoft 365 Archive and Microsoft 365 Backup. These two features may sound similar, but they have different functionalities. Microsoft 365 Archive provides coverage for SharePoint, while Microsoft 365 Backup provides coverage across SharePoint, OneDrive, and Exchange. We will be discussing why you should use these features, how to set them up, and their options. Additionally, we’ll cover the differences between the two features, such as the fact that Microsoft 365 Backup does not require an Azure subscription, unlike Microsoft 365 Archive. We’ll also delve into the policies, frequency and retention, and recovery options for each service.
