Office365 Backup Software – In-Depth
When downloaded and first ran, the tool started in an average time, without taking too much. Once initiated, the app asks you to login with your credentials to begin the backup process:
And if you do not want to login or do not have the credentials at the moment, the software has tons of features in its simple and easy to use UI (user interface) that welcomed us when we closed the login pop-up:
Although the interface is on one window only, it offers tons of features to the user, such as selecting between different file formats to export, like:
And if you choose the MBOX format, you also have a choice between selecting to create one MBOX for all folders or one for each folder.
There is also a decent filtering option, which allows you to select a date frame in which you want the data to be backed up.
One particularly interesting detail this software has is the live chat, which is created in the well-known chat service, called tawk.to – a reputable service, making it easy for both support and clients to solve problems. You also have the option to request a call back directly on your phone from the company.
When you go the chat page, all you have to do is enter your credentials and you will be connected to a representative of the MailsDaddy support team.
Office365 Backup Tool – Features & Capability
Even though the UI of this software looks simple and light, it is quite powerful, as we will now demonstrate by explaining about each feature:
You have the option to maintain the same folder and file structure on Office 365 as original. This software has components that remember and allow you to backup the absolutely same structure you originally had on your account, and it does not matter if you save the files in PST, MSG and EML format.
The feature to backup multiple mailboxes is also quite useful. This feature does allow you to not only backup your own mailbox, but also serve as a good sysadmin app that will help you manage several accounts at once and create a backup from them for an organisation. We found it easy to use as well.
You have the ability to select the folders on your mailbox to backup. This useful little extra allows you to only backup specific folders on your mailboxes to the formats mentioned above. It is simple to set up, as all you have to do is tick the box for the required folders you want included, and hit the “Export” button.
Another feature we found useful is Office 365 to MBOX conversion. This kind of backup allows you to migrate your standard online mailbox database to a MBOX format that can be used in other third-party software, such as Thunderbird, Entourage, Apple Mail, and other clients supporting this e-mail type.
Same as MBOX backup, the service also offers to export Office 365 into PST format. This is also a useful option, as it is simple and easy to work with and rather necessary for such software.
Exporting your Office 365 to MSG and EML formats are also important features. While using the MSG file format, the backup tool supports maintaining the same folder hierarchy and structure of files within, and the same goes for EML. When it comes to EML, it is also a good choice, as it supports other third-party clients, such as Windows Live Mail.
We believe that probably one of the best features this software has is the ability to only export your Contacts or just your Calendar entries. If you want to extract the saved contacts from a single or multiple Office 365 users, the software does this quite fast and in VCF file type, which we found rather convenient. The same situation happened with the Calendars export, which were saved in the ICS file format.
When it comes to being compatible with different file types, the Office 365 PST export feature is capable of saving all of the files attached to e-mails:
When it comes to the folders and transferring information via Microsoft Exchange online directories and sub-directories, this software also has the capability of retaining the same order of the folders, and this includes the following data:
- Deleted Items
- Junk Email
Furhtermore, the contacts export feature is also packed with component in it which remembers the data in your contacts, that allows it to retain the information details in the same places they were originally located when importing to PST from Office365. These information specifics include the following:
- Email Address
- Business Detail
- Phone Number
- Mobile Number
- Profile Photo
The same logic goes with Calendar exporting from Exchange Online to PST files. The information backed up includes the following types of calendar objects that you or the users in your organization might often interact with:
Calendar: It securely moves the calendar from the Exchange Online cloud platform to the On-Premise PST file with its complete information such as Status, Reminder, Location, Duration, End Time, Start Time, etc. It includes multiple types of calendars, including:
- Event entries.
And it also manages to retain those entries with all of their specifics, including:
- Start and End times.
- Simple and easy to use user interface.
- Packed full of useful features and components.
- Retains files order when exporting.
- Support all the necessary formats.
- The software could be a bit faster at start-up.
- A better demo could be added that includes more features and an ability to test it out more extensively.
The Bottom Line
MailsDaddy Office 365 Backup Tool is a very capable mailbox backup software for both home users and administrators of multiple machines alike, which makes it the right one for the job.
