Microsoft Recommends Third-Party Backup

“Deleted items are retained in recycle bins for a certain period of time. For SharePoint Online, the retention time is 93 days. It begins when you delete the item from its original location. When you delete the item from the site recycle bin, it goes into the site collection recycle bin. It stays there for the remainder of the 93 days, and then is permanently deleted.

Native Workarounds are Timebound and Cumbersome

Compared to SaaS cloud-to-cloud data backup for business critical solutions such as SharePoint - Native Solutions are incomplete.

  • Native solutions like Litigation Hold and Recycle Bins are timebound. Once the time limit is up your data is permanently deleted.
  • Native solutions are archival in nature and not built for data recovery. This means that restore is tedious and destructive (changes are overwritten) without unlimited point-in-time, or cross-user recovery.
