Back up public folders in Office 365 and Exchange

In this update, we focused on implementing a backup functionality for public folders. Now, you can freely back up data, e.g. emails, contacts or calendar items, from  Office 365/ Exchange public folders to your local storages. This way you can stay assured that your data is protected against accidental deletion or malicious behavior.

The screenshot below depicts the program’s wizard where you can select public folders you want to back up.

Now you can back up public folders in Office 365 and Exchange using CodeTwo Backup.

More information about all changes implemented in version 1.6 can be found on version history pages of CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 and CodeTwo Backup for Exchange.

How to calculate licenses for Public Folders?

The application, to back up public folders content, uses one license per each 0.5 GB of public folders data on the source server per year. For example, to back up 1.5 GB of public folders you need three licenses. There are no changes in the way user’s mailboxes are licensed – you still need one license to back up one mailbox.
