What Is Not Backed Up

  • Posts associated with meetings

  • Archived teams

  • Personal chats

  • Data from SharePoint folders other than the channel folder. You can back up documents only from the channel folder.

  • Preservation Hold Library

What Cannot Be Restored

  • Wikis, posts, or channels cannot be restored to a file location. You can restore only Teams uploaded files to a file location.

  • Images in a wiki cannot be restored to a different team. The images can be restores to the same team only if the original wiki page still exists.

  • Preservation Hold Library

Considerations

  • For items to be backed up, each team must have at least one user that is assigned the owner role.

  • After restoring a custom tab, you must manually link the content of the tab to view it.

  • To back up hosted content, see Commvault KB article 67692.
