The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

Bagaudin - thanks for replying! This was with the 2015 version I purchased for work a while back. With previous versions we used to maintain a bank of system images and all that - for tech support - and with this new one because of the licensing it was limiting us to one machine. I also upgraded from a HD to an SSD and the process of making the image and restoring kept throwing errors even though both drives were fine. I eventually just quit using it and haven't in a couple of years.

recently used SysTools Google Apps Backup Solution demo version mentioned in the top email backup solution for creating backup, Software allowed me to create export only 100 emails. For 100 emails the speed of backup creation was perfect and all the file were converted to .pst format. but what if I want to back up more than 9,000 emails and hundreds of contacts using this software?
Will the speed of backup differ?

Since one of my employee is leaving the organisation and i wanted to create back up of all his emails and contacts data for future references. I was thinking about trying this tool as it gives delete after download option that will save my time of deleting the data from the account.

Please, Anyone here assist me for the same!!!

Encountering issues like sudden system shutdown, damage in one or more files, or accidental deletion, is common in the Exchange environment. And while manual techniques like PowerShell commands and Exchange Management Shell are easily available, they often don’t prove to be accurate and effective.

Newly released Acronis True Image 2019
Newly released Acronis True Image 2019

In announcing the release of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Acronis True Image 2019, the company revealed that its artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology – stopped more than 200,000 ransomware attacks on 150,000 customers last year.

Office 365 has multiple features and services which are specially designed to help businesses to reduce their dependence on on-premises IT resources. It also offers great flexibility and enhanced security. But like any other data, Office 365 mailbox can also be backed up. Usually, this is done in PST format. And if you want to migrate Office 365 mailbox to Outlook, then also you need to save in PST format. However, there is no special feature available in the Office 365 for this need – but the Office 365 feature eDiscovery can be used to export the Office 365 mailbox to a PST file.


Step-by-step procedure to back up Office 365 mailbox to PST (using eDiscovery tool)


  1. Login to Office 365 and go to Admin center.
  2. In Admin center panel, go to Reports option and click Security & Compliance.
  3. In Security & Compliance center, click the Reports dashboard option which will take you to the dashboard.
  4. Click Permissions. It will have multiple tools listed. Among them is eDiscovery Manager tool which will export the Office 365 mailbox to PST. Check it, and then click Edit role group.
  5. Now, go to Choose eDiscovery Manager where you need to choose a single or multiple accounts which will have the authority to export the mailbox.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Choose accounts, and click Add.Click Done.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Now, go to Search & Investigation. Here, choose the Content search option. Click the (+) button to add new Search content.
  10. Input name of the search content, and choose the desired options from where you want to search the content.
  11. The next window will let you choose if you want to put a keyword in the search content. But if you want to search the whole content, then leave it empty.
  12. After the search process is completed, the user can easily export the search item in PST format. Click the Start Export option.
  13. In Exports search results window, choose the desired options among the available and click Start Export.
  14. The tool starts exporting data and you can download the download exported results to see the whole migration report.
  15. In Export search results, you can copy the URL which will be used in the eDiscovery PST export tool and paste it there.
  16. Copy the selected URL in eDiscovery PST Export tool, provide a destination to store the migrated data, and click Start Export. The migration will start.


Automated method


If you do not want to go through this tiresome, error-prone, or time taking the process of manually exporting the Office 365 mailbox to PST, then use Kernel Office 365 Backup & Restore which can easily access the Office 365 mailbox and save it in PST format at the user-defined location. Office 365 Backup tool has a highly simplified user-interface which any user with very office 365 credentials can use.

Among the most obnoxious of Exchange errors is error 1216 – Attached Database Mismatch error of the Jet Database Engine. When faced with this error, users may have to suffer from mailbox inaccessibility and in worst situations, permanent data loss.

I would add that you REALLY SHOULD store snapshots on a separate volume. The reason is that Windows may DELETE your snapshots stored with the parent volume during high disk IO. Imagine you have a large restore to do on your file server, so you do a smaller test restore first. It works, but the act of restoring creates so much IO that the other snapshots get deleted...the same snapshots you were about to use to restore from. Ouch! I have heard about it happening. It's the first best practice Microsoft lists.

Actually, I do recommend this...
"BUT WAIT! Before enabling, if you want to place your copies on a different volume or better still different physical disk (recommended for heavily used file servers), you need to click on the settings button before any copies are created (enabling a volume will instantly create a copy)."

Modern OS from Windows 7 onwards will disable disk cache and you will not have performance gain on using a RAMDisk.

Besides, the wearing from disk read and write will not have a significant impact to your SSD.

https://www.howtogeek.com/256859/dont-waste-time-optimizing-your-ssd-windows-knows-what-its-doing/

I have changed the HDD to SSD for a number of desktop PC for more than 18 months and they are still running to top speed like Day 1.

Before I changed to SSD, I did use RAMDisk to make Windows 7 ran faster by moving all cached and temporary files to the RAMDisk and my experience shows that the article in the link above is correct.

Besides, unless you are staying with 32 bit MS Windows, you will not have spare RAM for RAMDisk and it is better to let the OS to handle memory management.

Absolutely true! Backup is mandatory these days. I would recommend multiple backups (different hosts). The most common threat these days is indeed Ransomware and that's because it is very different from other types of viruses. Learn more about it and what you need to do to keep your data safe. Remember to always keep everything patched and updated!
