    Consists of Microsoft SharePoint sites and subsites.

    Each of these object types (except for the Sites and Teams types) consists of a set of processing/exclusion options such as Mail, Archive, OneDrive, Site, Group Mail and Group Site which you can select/deselect to make data retrieval even more precise.
