How Do I Back Up Team Sharepoint Collections?



How do I back up Team SharePoint Collections?


  • Backupify for Office 365
  • Datto SaaS Protection for Office 365


On Microsoft's new Teams platform, user data can be stored into special Teams Sharepoint Collections. To include this data in your backups, you must add the Team Sharepoint Collections URLs.

Teams SharePoint Collection URLs are saved in SharePoint, and are not displayed in the list of Custom Site Collections URLs at this time.


1. In the Office 365 SharePoint Admin center, click Site Collections, then click the Try the preview button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
