From the Backups page you can edit the backups for your domain, perform a “backup now” on your entire domain, pause your domain backups or delete the entire domain backup using the buttons to the right of your backup task.
These buttons perform the following functions:
Edit: Click on this button to add or delete users, take instant user backups, and change backup settings including backup time, frequency and index options.
Backup Now: Click here to schedule an immediate backup of your entire domain.
Pause: Click here to pause all of your domain backups.
Delete: Click here to permanently delete this domain backup and all associated backups.
The Edit function takes you to the G Suite Backup Tasks Setting page where you can change backup times, backup frequency, add / delete user backups, and modify Indexing options.
Managing User Backup Tasks
From here you can manage existing backups or activate backups for new users.
To manage existing user backups, use the icons to the right as follows:
Delete: Click here to permanently delete this user backup and all associated backups
Pause: Click here to pause the user backup. This can be used to archive an employee mailbox if needed as part of the off-boarding process. All backup data will be retained and available for restore or download, and can be restored to a different user mailbox (HR, Legal, Audit, etc.) as needed since the original mailbox has been deleted.
Backup Now: Click here to schedule an immediate backup of the user account.
Changing Processing Options
From this page you can also change your backup times, backup frequency and Archive Index settings.
