Started this question a while back on Yammer. What tools do you use to back-up mail and files stored in Office 365?
The fact that your files are back-upped inside and outside the datacenters of Microsoft only protects you against hardware and software failures on Microsofts side. It will not protect you against accidentally deleted files and mails, which is discovered after 30+ days or after the site trashbins have been emptied.
At least that's what I think. Anyone has an answer? My customers are typically small companies, under 10 users. Sometimes even just 1 to 3.
I use de SkyKick Back-up tools in my own O365 tenant. Which was an offer in the Microsoft Partner Mail recently.

@jarvinel Thank you for the unadulterated vendor pitch.
The facts of the matter are that a) Exchange Online uses Native Data Protection to limit the need for backup and b) if you do want backups, it is best to use a properly-managed cloud backup service than to depend on user-driven backup to local files that are insecure and easily corrupted.

Hello! Just a quick note to let people know I'm shutting this thread down to new responses. Seems like there's plenty of helpful information here already, and we'd like to avoid more third-party advertising which seems inevitable with this topic. Let me know if you have any questions.
