We are excited to let you know that our backup solutions, CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 and CodeTwo Backup for Exchange, have been upgraded to version 2.0 and now support SharePoint on-premises, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business backups. Together with mailbox and Public Folders backup features, companies using these tools gain the ability to address more complex backup needs with just one application on board.
Back up SharePoint and OneDrive for Business
CodeTwo Backup tools let you now secure your company data stored in SharePoint Online and SharePoint on-premises sites, as well as team sites and personal OneDrive sites of Office 365 users. In the program’s Jobs tab, you will find a new option when creating a new backup job – a dedicated job wizard for SharePoint backup.
The Exchange backup job configuration remains the same. The SharePoint backup job has a few different options to set up like e.g. choosing SharePoint sites, teams sites or OneDrive sites of Office 365 users for backup. Here you can get more information about creating SharePoint backup job.
Also, you will see some new options when restoring SharePoint and OneDrive for Business data. The restore job lets you recover entire SharePoint site collections, individual sites, libraries, folders or single items as well as team sites and user’s personal files stored on OneDrive for Business sites.

New licensing model
Version 2.0 also introduces a new licensing model. We believe you will find this new model more flexible and user-friendly. The most important thing about it is that this model allows you to freely activate multiple instanced of the software on different workstations. This is possible thanks to a central cloud-based service that counts your licenses usage. In other words, you can use one license to activate many instances of the software on many different PCs.
You will also notice subtle changes to the way the programs consumes licenses depending on backed up data. The new licensing model takes one license for each user mailbox (no change here), each 2 GB of public folders data (here we have increased the limit from 0.5 GB to 2 GB meaning you can back up more for less money) and each 10 GB of SharePoint data on the source server. For more details on licensing, go to the Pricing page of CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 or CodeTwo Backup for Exchange. If you have more technical questions regarding this new licensing model, visit this User’s Manual.
