SharePoint Backup Policy


For regulatory requirements, I want to get a backup policy for Sharepoint contents.

To clarify, I don't mean what is the timeframe to restore deleted contents, but in what frequency does Microsoft backup and saves backups of the existing up to date contents in the sharepoint.



Hi Eren,

SharePoint Online's data backups are performed every 12 hours and retained for 14 days.

This is taken from the article regarding SharePoint Online's Service Description, under the section Data Backup. Hope this answers your question.
