Topic

This article will explore two search methodologies in Backupify 2.0 for Office 365. 

Environment

  • Backupify 2.0 for Office 365

Description

In Backupify 2.0 for Office 365 there are two search methodologies:

  • Snapshot Level - initiated from a specific user account
  • Domain Level - initiated from the search tab

Snapshot Level Search

1. To access the Snapshot Level search, navigate to your Status tab if you have not already done so.

5. From this dialogue box, you will be able to search your selected user/service for metadata containing the keyword you entered.

  • Backupify 2.0 cannot search the document content and only searches the metadata info.

6. You can also search for different snapshots for specific users (Figure 6). To change the snapshot date, click the date under Snapshot to the left of the search box, and select an available date and time to search that specific snapshot instead.

6. You can also search across different snapshots by clicking the calendar icon under the Choose Date section. 

  • The search will not show exact snapshots as backup times vary from user to user. Instead, the date and time selected will find the last backup before the specified times for each searched user/service.
