After you configure service information for a client account, you can specify the SharePoint Site Collections (Document Libraries) that will be backed up. 

There are two methods you can use to select SharePoint Site Collections for backup with x360Cloud.

Each is described in the instructions below:

NOTES:

  • When you back up a SharePoint Site Collection, you are backing up all Document Libraries that exist in that Site Collection. Learn more about using documents and libraries in Microsoft SharePoint.
  • Optionally, you can configure x360Cloud to automatically back up new SharePoint Site Collections.
  • x360Cloud might take up to 24 hours to back up selected Site Collections. The initial backup might take up to 72 hours to complete. Future backups are automatically scheduled to run multiple times per day.
