Could you retrieve a ten-year-old deleted Office 365 file if you needed to?

There are all sorts of reasons that you could lose files. They could be deleted or overwritten by accident, be in a previous employee’s inbox that’s been deleted, or even lost because they were encrypted in a ransomware attack (see our last blog for more about that). In fact, the No. 1 cause of data loss in systems such as Microsoft Office 365 is accidental deletion. About 70 per cent of all lost data is due to end-users accidentally or maliciously deleting data.

Managing meetings in a “hybrid” model business

We have all got used to video meetings since March 2020. But how do you manage meetings as staff come back to the office? Many of our clients are moving to a “hybrid” model, with employees only coming into the office one to three days a week.

This is great for staff morale and will benefit many businesses, but it does mean that you may need to hold meetings for a mixture of staff working from home and in the office.

So, what are your options?

Hands-free backup

Even if your staff are working from home, they should be accessing your server via VPN and storing all work data there (and/or Onedrive for Office files). You can set aside a portion of your server that only they or an administrator can access. This minimises disruption if a device is damaged or lost or an employee is on holiday or is unwell. But what about the server itself? How much is your data worth?
