The product license key is sold in a pre-paid annual subscription model. The price is based on the number of Office 365 users whose data you want to back up. One user requires one license, regardless of whether you want to back up their mailbox, public folder or SharePoint Online data they have access to, or all those resources at the same time.
So, if you want to back up specific user mailboxes, you need licenses for all these users. If you want to back up shared resources (such as public folders or shared mailboxes), you need to have licenses for all users who can access and modify these resources. Learn more about the licensing of shared resources.
Technical support and all program updates are included in the subscription price. What does technical support include?
New license / renew license (annual subscription)
To calculate the price, please provide the number of users whose data you want to back up.
The program consumes one license per one backed-up user. So, if you want to back up a user mailbox, this user needs to be licensed. For example, to back up mailboxes of 56 users, you need 56 licenses of CodeTwo Backup for Office 365.
If you intend to back up other types of mailboxes (such as shared or Office 365 group mailboxes) with CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 as well, you need to make sure you have licenses for users who are members of these mailboxes. For details, see the program’s user manual.
Public folders backup
No matter what kind of data you back up, one backed-up user requires one license. To back up public folders, you need to make sure all users who can create, edit or delete the contents of these public folders are licensed. This means that if a certain public folder can be accessed and modified by e.g. 13 employees, to back it up you need 13 licenses that have to be assigned to these employees. Those licenses allow you to back up these users’ mailbox data as well. The size of public folders’ data does not make any difference.
If all users in your organization are licensed, it automatically means that you can back up all public folders, regardless of their size.
SharePoint/OneDrive for Business data backup
Each user whose SharePoint data you back up requires a license.
To back up a classic SharePoint site collection, i.e. a site that is not connected to any Office 365 group, you need to have a license assigned to each user who can create or modify items on this site. For example, you have a SharePoint site collection called “Sales”, which can be accessed and modified by all members of your Sales team, consisting of 45 users, and an IT team, which consists of 5 users. In this case, to back up this site, you need 50 licenses assigned to all members of your Sales and IT teams. Those licenses allow you to back up these users’ mailbox data as well.
If you want to back up a SharePoint team site, i.e. a site that is connected to an Office 365 group, you need to assign licenses to all members of this group. For example, a team site “Marketing” is connected to an Office 365 group “Marketing”, which has 15 members. In order to create a backup copy of this site, you need 15 licenses that will be assigned to these 15 users. Those licenses also allow you to back up the contents of the Marketing Office 365 group mailbox, as well as individual mailboxes of those users.
The program requires a license for each user whose OneDrive for Business site you want to back up. Licenses assigned to users allow you to back up their mailboxes as well.
If all users in your organization are licensed, it automatically means that you can back up all SharePoint Online data (all types of sites), regardless of its size.
