Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 for Office 365 backs up SharePoint Team Sites and Communication Sites.

Provisioning SharePoint Site backups

When you first provision your account, Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 will detect and list SharePoint and Team SharePoint sites but will not automatically begin backing them up. You must manually select which Sites to back up.

1. From the Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection 2.0 dashboard, click the Sites tab. You will see the following information and options:

  • The Sites Overview status bar, which shows a color-coded status report of all Sites in your O365 account, and gives you the option to export them as a CSV document
  • The Auto Add pane, which lets you automatically add new Sites and Team Sites.
  • The Manage Sites pane, which lists your sites and lets you set the backup status on a per-Site basis.

2. Click the blue slider to manually enable backups for each Site, or click the sliders in the Auto Add pane to enable Auto Add for all net new Sites.

Auto Add only affects net new Sites; You must manually turn on backups for existing Sites in the Manage Sites pane.
