Hi All,

 

I've searched and not had much luck with specifically what I'm looking for. 

 

With regard to Teams file and tab conversations... How is the file and tab-specific conversation data backed up? Is it available to be restored if deleted?

 

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

Currently you can not restore messages to conversations. You can recover them via the group mailbox using the ediscovery searches on the group mailbox.

The files if deleted would be recovered through Sharepoint recycle bin for 90 days after that you can’t ynless you had retention turned on for the teams / SharePoint site.
Hi Duane
 
I also understand that the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center may also store a copy of the conversations.
 
Have a look see at the following link in another discussion:
 
Cheers

yeah but they cannot be restored you can only retrieve them for viewing.
Very true. At least it can be viewed. Very important in my workplace for audit/compliance.

Teams still has a long way to go, but I reckon this product will go from strength to strength!

Cheers
Damien

Thank you for the replies. This is helpful and I'll dig into the information you've provided.
