Create backups

CodeTwo Backup creates backups of your Exchange data (mailboxes and public folders) as well as SharePoint data (site collections, team sites, and OneDrive for Business) by running backup jobs. The backed-up data is kept in storages. Each job can back up one type of data (Exchange or SharePoint), from one type of environment (on-premises or Office 365); however, you can run multiple jobs at the same time. Backup jobs use server connections configured in the program to connect to a specific environment.
