  • There is a deep dive going on tomorrow for O365 V2. I'll get more information.



  • Sounds good.

    I really think this is a product more people need than they realize.



  • I've been using this for a few months now. Tested deleting an entire mailbox (small one for test) and was able to fully recover it. Love this product!



  • The backup for ODfB is a nice feature.

    Admins typically can't even access that, at least not easily.
