Restoring Office 365 Sites

You can restore Office 365 sites either to the same source client or to a new destination client.

Notes:

  • During an out-of-place restore operation of multiple related sites, the top-most selected site in the source hierarchy is restored to the destination site. The remaining subsites are restored in the same hierarchical order as seen in the source.
  • You cannot browse and restore the deleted items.
  • You cannot select multiple site collections for a single restore operation.

Before You Begin

If you are restoring a deleted site, you must manually create the destination top-level site before performing the restore operation. Deleted subsites are automatically created under the destination top-level site during the restore operation.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Applications > Office 365.

    The Office 365 apps page appears.

  2. Click a SharePoint server.

    The selected SharePoint server page appears.

  3. Select one or more subclients that you want to restore, and then click Restore.

    The Backup content page appears.

  4. From the upper-right of the page, select a backup to restore:
    • To restore the most recent backup, click Show latest backups.
    • To restore a backup from a specific date, click Show backups as of a specific date, select a date, and then select the backup.
    • To restore a backup from a date range, click Show backups for a date range, select a date range, and then select the backup.
