Office 365 groups, teams, and SharePoint team sites are closely related and often contain overlapping data. Every Office 365 Group has a team site in SharePoint. A group can also have a team in Teams, which is manually created. Every Team that is created automatically creates an Office 365 group, which in turn creates a team site in SharePoint.

In Keepit, groups and teams data is backed up in the Groups & Teams backup, while team sites are backed up in the SharePoint backup. This means that if you want to back up a team site and its notebook, the SharePoint backup must be enabled in addition to the Groups & Teams backup.

Backed up Groups & Teams data

  • Group conversations
  • Calendar
  • Planner
  • Files¬†
  • Team channels including channel posts and replies
    • Wiki pages (backed up but cannot be restored, only recovered by copy-pasting data out or downloading raw files)
  • Notebook (only if SharePoint backup is enabled)
  • Team sites (only if SharePoint backup is enabled)

If SharePoint is enabled, you are backing up team sites and associated notebooks. This means you will see links to them in your Groups & Teams backup.

If SharePoint is not enabled, you are not backing up team sites and their associated notebooks. This means you will not see links to SharePoint (team sites) and notebook.
