CloudBerry Backup 7.4 BETA

CloudBerry Backup 7.4 BETA

Here at MSP360 we are constantly working on our Backup software improvement and adding new features. We are developing the software for you - our clients and we would like to hear from you what you think about the new features. That is why we are starting a BETA testing initiative for our customers and the first application we would like to provide for your judgment and review is CloudBerry Backup 7.4 with the new awesome features.

New Backup Format Support for Hyper-V (Help)

One of the most important features of this version, which includes a wide spread of improvements and optimizations, such as:

  • Performance Improvement. Drastically increases the speed of the backup itself, reducing the time required for the backup to finish multiple times.
  • Client-Side Deduplication. The new backup format allows backup of deduplicated data to storage. Deduplication is done directly on the client-side, reducing both the amount of data sent to storage and the time needed for upload.
  • Consistency Checks. In the new backup format, we make sure that all files required for the restore point exist in backup storage.
  • Synthetic Full Backup. Another key feature of the new backup format. The synthetic full backup is a type of subsequent full backup that makes a comparison to the previously backed up data on the storage and uploads only the current changes from the backup source. Synthetic full backup helps to reduce the amount of data uploaded and accelerates a full backup creation.
  • Retention Policy. The retention policy is simplified and easier to use, you only need to choose the period for which the backups should be kept.

Support Hyper-V Cluster (Help)

Another important feature. Allows you to connect to a Hyper-V Cluster and backup the Virtual Machines remotely.

Immutability Storage Support (Help)

When copying logs and other important data, make sure that this data is protected. Using the native features of Amazon S3, you can configure a bucket to protect the integrity of your data. For example, you can prevent an object from being deleted or overwritten.

EFS Support (Help)

A long-awaited ability to backup EFS encrypted files. Used in most of the corporate domains and one of the most accessible security features for Windows users.

Restore from Cloud Performance Improvements for Image-Based Backup/VM

As much as the backup needs to be fast, it is even more important for the restore process to be even faster. This is why we have also improved the restore speed for our most popular backup modes.

Why BaaS Needs to Be as Flexible as Possible

Over the past year and a half, many people’s working lives have been turned upside down due to the pandemic and the sudden transition to remote work. As part of that, organizations have had to rethink how they use and optimize many of the tools at their disposal in order to remain effective and efficient as organizations. One area where this has taken place is around backup and disaster recovery (BDR). Continue reading

How to Delete Data for Office 365 or G Suite in MSP360 Managed Backup

How to Delete Data for Office 365 or G Suite in MSP360 Managed Backup

Microsoft Office 365 and G Suite / Google Workspace are designed for unlimited numbers of users, and each user pool changes with time; new people are added and some are excluded. When you work with a company with one or both of these services in its IT infrastructure, one of the tasks you do regularly is deleting useless backup data – for example, when a user leaves this company or when you need to free up some space in the storage.

In this guide, we’ll cover the three ways to delete data from Office 365 and G Suite backups made by MSP360 Managed Backup Service. Here, we show the process for Office 365, but the process for G Suite is very similar.

Before we start, please note that to delete any data, you’ll need administrator rights. To avoid accidental purges, each time you delete something, you need to confirm your actions with the password of your alternate email. After confirmation, the deletion starts. You will be able to see it as a process in Task Manager. You can pause or stop it like a “common” process but data that has already been deleted at the moment of pausing or stopping it can’t be reverted.

Now, log into your account, <account_name>.apps.mspbackups.com, enter your credentials, and let’s begin.

  New call-to-action

Deleting Data from the Users Page

To delete data for a user or group of users, proceed to the Users tab. You will see a list of all your users. Select all of those whose data you want to delete. Above the list, click Delete Backup.

A slide-in will appear with a list of services. Choose all you want to delete, type the alternate email password and click Delete.

Please note: Sharepoint data is removed for the entire organization. This can be done by the global administrator only.

Deleting a G Suite / Office 365 Backup in MSP360 Managed Backup

If you want to delete a user, there are two requirements:

  1. This user should be deleted from the G Suite / Office 365 users list (in the user list this one will appear with “deleted1” shown against in their name).
  2. All this user’s backup data should be deleted.

Select such users and you will see a Delete User option above the users list. Click it, confirm the deletion, and then hit Delete.

Service Pages

In MSP360 Managed Backup, each G Suite / Office 365 service has its own page where you can also delete all data you no longer need. To perform this, proceed to the page of the required service, choose a user in the top-left corner of the screen, select the data you want to get rid of (one or more items), click Delete, and confirm the deletion with your alternate email password to launch the removal process. Here’s an example for Office 365 (in G Suite, everything works similarly).

Mail

G Suite / Office 365 Mail Deletion in MSP360 Managed Backup

To delete a whole folder, choose it from the drop-down menu on the left, then open the Folder drop-down menu and select Delete Selected Folder.

Drive

To select multiple items, hold down the shift key. Bear in mind that if you delete a file or folder, all its revisions are removed.

Contacts

Deleting a Contacts Backup in MSP360 Managed Backup

You can also delete a whole folder of contacts.

If a contact has several versions, for example, the phone number of a person has changed, you can delete older numbers by clicking Revisions near this contact, choosing the number that is no longer required, and hitting Delete.

Calendar

Here, the process is slightly different: choose the calendars that you want to delete and click Delete Selected.

Deleting a Calendar Backup in MSP360 Managed Backup

You can also remove events from the calendar. Click an event and then hit Delete.

SharePoint

To remove any data from SharePoint, you need to be a global administrator. Otherwise, the deletion will be denied. On this page, you can also delete files or documents related to Teams, as it is backed up along with SharePoint data. Use shift for multiple selection if needed.

Deleting Data from the My Account Menu

You can erase all the G Suite / Office 365 data related to your user – the user whose credentials you enter when logging into the MSP360 Managed Backup Service console. Go to the My Account menu.

My Account Menu in MSP360 Managed Backup

There, you can delete all the data from this account or the whole account with its users, preferences, backups, etc. Please note that this can’t be undone.

Conclusion

As you can see, in MSP360 Managed Backup, you have a variety of options to delete your G Suite / Office 365 backup data, both for the whole organization and granularly. You can easily keep your storage space under control and remove useless data in a timely manner. If you have any questions, please contact our team.

Replacing SolarWinds with MSP360: One MSP’s Story

Replacing SolarWinds with MSP360: One MSP’s Story

When it comes to backup software, flexibility matters. Backup tools that take a one-size-fits-all approach by giving users minimal customization are poorly suited to meet the needs of the diverse MSP market. That is one of the takeaways from the story of RAB-ITT, an American MSP that provides managed services for small businesses. The company recently migrated from SolarWinds Backup to MSP360 Managed Backup, due in part to its need for a more flexible backup platform. Continue reading
