As more of my customers / friends / family move over to Office 365 / Gapps / etc, one thing they keep coming back to is how do I back it up. I am still at a bit of a loss, I haven’t found a product I like (or is affordable) to backup, say, Exchange Online and Onedrive. Any packages / scripts you good people can recommend…
Well if you’ve got e.g. Gdrive installed on your PC you can backup that Gdrive folder with any backup program.
should do a good job at syncing the files from many of these services to a machine from where you can use the backup solution of your choice
+1 to rclone. Will have to write a script to do the sync between your remotes, but it’ll do the job nicely
imapsync perhaps, for outlook 365 accounts?
I’ve been searching for a similar solution for Gmail.
I saw a neat app for Qnap NAS’s where you have you can schedule backups jobs and view individual backed up messages.
I was looking for a similar self-hosted solution.
You can try and use a desktop client to download the messages and then backup the local folder, but the restore process is very messy on PCs.
I’m not a big Apple fan but I need to give them a thumbs up on this aspect. MacOS has a nice integration with TimeMachine that allows you to access TimeMachine from within their AppMail, visualise the backed up messages and easily restore them.
I’m glad I hadn’t missed anything really obvious. I’ll just write some scripts for email and use rclone. I am a little surprised there isn’t a home user “commercial” offering out there yet.
Just seen Veeam do a product that’s free for up to 10 users. Going to have a quick play with that too.
Cloudberry has some interesting offerings, and less expensive than some competitors. Still all cloud based and subscription though. Unitrends has something also but I haven’t researched it much. I am in search of something reasonable to back up my company’s O365, including Onedrive and Sharepoint. Everything I have found is pretty pricey.
Speaking of Cloudberry – I received a free license key for Backup for Linux Standard Edition a couple years back during a giveaway they had. I don’t ever plan on using it, so if someone wants it, let me know.
Imap sync is not that great for syncing.
The developer suggest offlineimap or mbsync.
Thank you. I’ll have a look at those two. But I guess those are for syncing and I’m looking something for backup. And preferably something I can easily visualise and recover old / deleted / archived emails.
