  • Backups in the Cloud

    Hello,

    If all my servers are in 365, in the Cloud (none on premises) , then Microsoft takes care of the backups ?

    Yes, for a suitable definition of "takes care of"

    Basically Office 365 file storage (One Drive, or whatever they are calling it this week) is SharePoint, so they have versioning enabled and you can go back to previous versions as you need to. The actual physical backup is handled by Microsoft according to their own rules

      I see, thanks.

      That might be the well-known shadow copies ?

      But, for instance (I asked this two days ago) , if something gets wrong with AD or Exchange and I want to rely on my yesterday's backup , can I do that ?

      I think it is now "SkyDrive", but I get your point about "whatever they are calling it this WEEK", hehe

      I guess OneDrive, SkyDrive, is now the File Server.

      All is changing! :/

      Thanks again.
