Q: Is OneDrive for Business data backed up?


OneDrive for Business is a collaboration platform used by millions of organizations worldwide. Widespread adoption of OneDrive by businesses also means there is an increase in the risk of data loss due to a wide variety of reasons.

In their Services Agreement, Microsoft states that it is not responsible for backing up your OneDrive data. Specifically, their Services Agreement (Section 6.b) states:

“We strive to keep the services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve your content or data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup your content and data that you store on the services or store using third-party apps and services.”
