The MetaVis Solution for SharePoint Backup

“Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Good old Murphy’s Law. Whether you’re an administrator or a user, it is your mortal enemy. When it comes to SharePoint environments, you need protection from the accidental, and Backup for SharePoint is just the thing. Whether you need archival software to free up space in your environment, backups in the event of accidental deletion, or a full on disaster recovery solution, Backup for SharePoint is exactly what you need.

  • SharePoint Backup - Backup and extract site collections, sites, lists and libraries, documents and versions, permissions, views, column groups, fields, terms, and content types in SharePoint, Office 365 & OneDrive.
  • Archive - Archive legacy or orphaned content from SharePoint and Office 365 to a file system based on specific search and filter criteria of your choice.
  • Multiple restoration options - Restore content to SharePoint or Office 365 site collections, sites, list and libraries, and folders without rolling back the entire SharePoint farm. You can even granularly restore selected SharePoint items from your backup with the option to include metadata, versions, and authorship properties.
  • Schedule Backups – Use the built in scheduler, upload to Windows Task Scheduler, or generate a script to be used in Powershell or the command line to run full or incremental backups.

No matter your business need, Backup for SharePoint is your best defense against Murphy’s Law.

Backup for SharePoint is Included in Architect Suite, Admin Suite, Office 365 Suite
