Does SharePoint have a backup?

While SharePoint, both Online and Server versions, do have built-in backup capabilities, they may not be enough for your organization's specific needs. SharePoint's backup capabilities differ for its Online and Server versions:
SharePoint Online: Hosted on Microsoft 365's cloud, Microsoft ensures regular backups for disaster recovery. However, user-specific issues like accidental deletions are managed via the 'Recycle Bin' (retaining items for 93 days) and 'Version History' for document recovery. Despite this a holistic backup strategy is advised for crucial data. Alcion has zero reliance on “hacks” such as the recycle bin or legal holds.  
SharePoint Server (On-Premises): With on-premises SharePoint, backup is manual. Native backup features exist, but often, organizations resort to SQL Server tools, Windows Server Backup, or third-party solutions for versatility.
Alcion's Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS): For SharePoint Online users, Alcion provides extensive backup, shielding data from threats, ensuring quick recovery, and maintaining data safety without relying on limited backup alternatives.

How long does SharePoint Online keep deleted emails?

Deleted emails in SharePoint Online are retained in the first stage Recycle Bin for 93 days. This means that you can restore deleted emails from the Recycle Bin within that timeframe. After 93 days, deleted emails are moved to the second stage Recycle Bin, where they are retained for an additional 14 days.  While SharePoint Online provides a basic retention policy for deleted emails, its protection is limited and doesn't safeguard against accidental deletions or ransomware attacks. Alcion's comprehensive backup solution offers additional layers of protection, including granular restoration, AI-powered protection, and off-site storage, ensuring that your SharePoint Online data remains safe and accessible
