    The Office 365 apps page appears.

  2. In the Name column, click the app that contains the users or the user groups that you want to exclude.

    The app page appears.

    • On the Users tab, select one or more users that you want to exclude, click the menu icon , and then click Manage > Exclude from backup.

    • On the Content tab, select one or more user groups that you want to exclude, click the menu icon , and then click Manage > Exclude from backup.

      A confirmation dialog box appears.
