Selecting Your Backup Preferences – Office 365 Groups

CloudAlly gives you the flexibility to automatically detect and backup new Groups accounts, as well as select other backup preferences described below. Once you have selected your preferences, make sure and click “Save” at the bottom of the screen.

Click this box to have CloudAlly automatically activate backups for all Groups and for new Groups added to the system in the future. If you don’t select this option, you will need to manually activate backups for new Groups as they are added.

Archive Location (Display Only)

This is the AWS datacenter location you originally selected when signing up for your CloudAlly account. Contact support@cloudally.com if you would like to change the location.

Selecting your Backup Hour

By default CloudAlly backups run at approximately 02:00 UTC. You can change the backup time by selecting a new UTC time from the drop down menu.

Selecting your Backup Frequency

Backup frequency is set to daily by default, but you can change this to every 3 days or weekly from the drop down menu.

Indexing your Backup Data

Granular search and restore requires indexing the backup data, but the indexed data is not encrypted. By default the “Index the archived data” will be checked and your archives will be indexed for use in the granular search and restore function. Uncheck the “Index the archived data” box if you do not want indexing to occur. This will disable the granular search and restore function but you can still browse backups via date.
