Iperius is one of the best software solutions for backing up Office 365, specifically the documents and files stored in Microsoft 365 OneDrive accounts.
Moreover, Iperius also supports backup of Exchange Online and can protect all the email accounts of Microsoft 365.
Microsoft 365 offers several powerful services for business productivity, but it doesn’t have a built-in feature to fully back up Office 365 data and Exchange Online mailboxes. That’s why you need software like Iperius which, with a perpetual license and unbeatable pricing, allows you to protect unlimited Microsoft 365 accounts, saving locally all the emails and files of every user.
Finally, Iperius can perform incremental and differential backups continuously (thus allowing for a granular restore) and can transfer backups to unlimited destinations, such as local NAS or Cloud services. You can compress the backup and send it to Google Drive, Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze, IBM Cloud, Azure and any other compatible S3 storage.
Iperius Backup is a robust and reliable software, on the market for more than 10 years and distributed in over 180 countries. Its guaranteed security, perpetual license, and affordable cost make Iperius the best solution for Microsoft 365 backup.
Download the free version of Iperius Backup and try the Office 365 backup right away.
Now let’s see a short tutorial on how to set up Office 365 file backup (OneDrive Download).
1) OneDrive account creation (365)
We add the Microsoft 365 account and choose the Account Name:
Now we enter the username (email) of our account and a new “Azure AD Application name”.
We then select the Region of our organization and click on “Generate a new self-signed certificate”. If you already have a certificate, you can import it via File Explorer.
To complete Modern Authentication you need to copy and paste the “Device Code” into the Microsoft 365 login page, as described in the following steps:
Now we can close the browser and Save the OneDrive account configuration (Microsoft 365).
Finally, click on the “Connect” button. If the connection is successful, we will get a positive message as shown in the next image.
Click on the “Next” button to list the mailboxes.
2) Select the account
In a few seconds, the panel will be populated with the accounts present within the Outlook 365 organization.
We choose the accounts to download documents from within OneDrive and click on “Next”:
With Iperius you can configure a full, incremental or differential backup of OneDrive files and documents , even to network destinations, choosing the number of copies to keep.
You can also set filters for file extensions and sizes or directly exclude specific files and paths.
Finally, it is possible to add a secondary destination to the backup, once the copy to the first configured destination is finished.
We check in the Summary that everything is ok and confirm:
3) Set Additional Destinations (optional)
Once the OneDrive backup item has been set up, click on the “Next” button to continue configuring the backup operation (see image below).
The next panel, “Destinations”, allows us to select one or more additional destinations for the backup operation by choosing between folders, tape, FTP or cloud (see next image).
Obviously they will be active only if, within the OneDrive backup object, the option “Copy the exported files also to the destinations of the backup operation”, which we have seen above, has been checked.
To finish the job configuration, continue in the settings using the “Next” button (by scrolling we can set further options such as scheduling and email notification of the backup result) until we reach the final summary panel, “Summary”. Here we will be able to select a name for our backup operation and any notes. Once set, click on the “Ok” button to confirm.
4) Starting the backup operation
At this point we will find the job just created in the list of Iperius backup operations.
To start it, just select it and click on the “Run” button, highlighted in the image below:
The job will start and export the selected mailboxes to the chosen destinations.
