Microsoft OneDrive for business is a cloud-based storage and hosting service designed for users to save files, photos, and other documents, often included as standard within many of the Office 365 subscriptions. The introduction of the ‘Important PC Folders backups’ enabled businesses to sync user’s Desktop, Document, and Picture folders directly to the signed-in user via OneDrive was a revolution for many, offering a way to secure user’s data from their local drive automatically.

The issue however which businesses in UK and world wide face is that Microsoft does not by default backup your organisations OneDrive.

Doesn’t OneDrive sync everything?

When a user is installed and signed in, Microsoft OneDrive for business application connects their device directly to the signed-in account, granting the user storage allocation. Data then automatically syncs between the device and the account. But should anything happen to the account or the data – such as a licence is removed, data is deleted, becomes corrupt, or is compromised by a cyberattack, Microsoft does not provide an inbuilt backup solution enabling you to recover your data.
