Restoring Posts

You can use Veeam Data Cloud to restore posts of Microsoft Teams channels. The restore options differ depending on whether you want to restore all posts of a channel or specific posts.

  • All posts of a channel can be either restored to the original channel or downloaded to a local computer.
  • Specific posts can be downloaded to a local computer only.

Restoring All Posts

To restore all posts of a Microsoft Teams channel:

  1. In the main menu, click Teams.

Note

Consider the following:

  • If your organization does not have any backups, you may not have access to the Teams Backups page.
  • To be able to restore team posts, make sure that Microsoft Teams chat backup is enabled. For details, see Enabling Microsoft Teams Chat Backup.

If team chat backup is not enabled for the organization, the backup does not contain team posts, and no posts are available for restore when you select the Posts node on the Teams Backups page.

  1. On the Teams Backups page, expand the team whose channel posts you want to restore.
  2. Expand the channel whose posts you want to restore and select Posts.
  3. Click Restore Selected Posts.

  • Original Location. Select this option if you want to restore posts to the original channel. Veeam Data Cloud will create a new tab in the original channel and restore posts to this tab.
