Microsoft Teams is your organization’s central collaboration system; its communication nerve center. If some critical conversations are mistakenly deleted; worried employees will look to you the IT admin to restore them. So, how do you recover lost MS Teams data? With painstaking native options or secure backup of Microsoft Teams that guarantees quick and easy recovery.
With our workforces going remote, organizations are moving en masse to SaaS platforms like Microsoft Office 365, G Suite, and Salesforce. In particular, the remote workforce has taken a shine for Microsoft Teams. Its customer base jumped by 70 percent to 75 million daily active users. No surprise, as it’s extremely intuitive to use, seamlessly integrates with other popular Office 365 apps, TeamDrive, and syncs with SharePoint. With the security vulnerabilities of the remote workforce, securing and protecting all your Office 365 data is all the more critical.
Below are two ways to recover deleted Microsoft Teams messages/conversations:
Recover Deleted Teams messages: The Native Way
Consider an important conversation was mistakenly deleted. And you don’t have MS Teams backup. You have a tough road ahead.
- Deleted MS Teams messages do not go to the Recycle Bin.
- However, MS Teams messages are archived in the Compliance Center. If you haven’t enabled Compliance, it’s the end of the road, or rather the message.
- If Compliance is enabled, go to Microsoft’s Compliance Center and use the Content Search.
- Then comes the hassle of the filter criteria – date, type, sender, recipient, location, etc.
- After you finally narrow the criteria to find the message, you then have to work on exporting the result.
- Done? Nope. You then have to install Microsoft Office 365’s Export Tool to export the file as a .pst.
- Then use Outlook’s export/import tool to import the PST file. Phew!
