Now that you have created your SpinOne account for your Microsoft 365 account, it’s time to backup your data! Keep in mind that the first automated backup will occur right after you have created your account. Note: While automated backups are in progress, you will not be able to run any manual backups. Depending on the automated backup frequency you have chosen for your Spin account, automated backups will occur either 1x or 3x per day.  

If your automated backups have completed, and now you want to start your backup manually, follow these steps:

1. Tap the Office 365 Login button located on the upper left-hand corner.

Click to Zoom

2. Sign in via OAuth or with your SpinOne credentials.

3. From the left panel of your dashboard, click Users.

Click to Zoom


You will see a list of all activated users from your Workspace organization. You can filter licensed users in SpinOne who are either active, suspended, or deleted in your Microsoft 365 organization. 

 

4.  Choose the user whose account must be backed up, unfold it by clicking on +/- button and click on the Exchange Online button under the user’s name or select the symbol for Exchange Online for the specific user.

Click to Zoom

5. Press Backup.

6. When the backup process is complete, you can see the mailbox with its folders hierarchy successfully backed up.

From the service selector on the top left, you can switch to other Microsoft 365 services for the user.
