With SaaS Backup for Microsoft 365, you can perform high-level and granular-level restores for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft 365 Groups and Teams.

Learn how to perform high-level and granular-level restores:

The following tables show the high-level restore options that are supported per service and where to find the restored data in SaaS Backup.

When your data is deleted, or deprovisioned, you can restore the data to another location (mailbox, site, Mysite, group, or team) or export the data. You cannot restore to the same location.
