Before You Begin

Before you configure a backup job, consider the following:

  • The target location where you plan to store backup files must have enough free space.
  • You can create only one entire organization backup job per organization.
  • Objects that are already added to the scope of any of your backup jobs will be skipped from the entire organization processing list.
  • Due to possible access limitations some Sites objects may be unavailable.
  • Due to Microsoft limitations, you cannot add the following objects for Microsoft 365 organizations with enabled security defaults: Discovery Search Mailboxes, Public Folder Mailboxes and Dynamic Distribution Groups.
