Introduction

BackupAssist 365 is an easy to use application that backs up mailboxes and data from cloud services to a local destination of your choice. This a means you will have a local copy of your own data, and that copy is incrementally updated each time the backup task runs.

What is download?

For mailboxes, all of the mail data, including contacts, meetings, journal entries, emails and email attachments are downloaded. You can also download specific mail items based on the time frames you specify when creating the backup task. For cloud storage, you can select the files and folders that you want to back up.

Why have a local copy?

It's important to have a copy of your cloud data that you control. This ensures that you have access to your data if you lose your internet connection or access to the cloud service. It also means you have an archive your data (cold storage) for protection and data compliance.

Where are the backups saved?

You can back up to any device or location connected to the PC, laptop or tablet that BackupAssist 365 is installed on. For example the local drive, a USB drive or thumb drive.
