Restore Teams data

inSync Cloud Editions: File:/tick.png Elite Plus File:/tick.png Elite File:/cross.png Enterprise File:/cross.png Business

Overview

In case of accidental deletion or malicious activities leading to data loss, you can retrieve or restore your lost data from inSync backups.

  • Due to Microsoft API limitations,
    • Native restore of Conversations (within Standard and Private Channels) is not supported.
    • Restore of Wiki data under the Wiki tab within Microsoft Teams is not supported.  Wiki data is restored within the SharePoint Online site at this location: Site contents> Teams Wiki data - as .mht files><Channel Name>.

Here's a basic workflow of Teams data restore.

The Restore window appears based on the Team's component selected for restore - Full Team (Settings and all Channels), only Channels (without Team Settings, or only files or folders or wiki within Channel). See Support matrix for restore.

An inSync administrator can restore Teams' data using the inSync Management Console at the following locations based on the selection for restore:

Restore Location

  • Restore to the same team: Restore data to the same team from which it was backed up.
  • If the same team does not exist in the Microsoft Teams app, a possible scenario wherein, the team was deleted after the backup, inSync creates a new team with the same Team name (along with its Settings and Channel data)  within Microsoft Teams.
  • In inSync,  both the deleted team and the new team with the same name co-exist and are listed on the inSync Management Console after discovery.  Both of these Teams listed have their own respective backup snapshots which may differ.  For example, Team XYZ  is deleted from  Microsoft Teams app after it was backed up by inSync, you can restore this team with the same name (Team XYZ) from inSync.  After the restored team is discovered in inSync Management  Console, two Teams with similar names Team XYZ co-exist.  Each of these Team XYZ  has its own different snapshots based on the backups initiated for them.

  • Restore to a different team: You can restore the data using any one of the following ways:
    • Restore to another existing team: Restore one team's data to another existing team.
    • Restore to a new team: Create a new team in your Microsoft 365 tenant and restore data to this new team.

The Restore to a different team option is available only for the following scenarios:

  • Full team restore (Settings and all Channels)
  • Only Channels (without Team Settings) restore 
  • Only Team Settings (without Channels) restore

See the  Support matrix for restore.

Note:  For  a successful  In-Place Restore, ensure that  the  hierarchy of  files/folder data  within the inSync snapshot  is  exactly similar to the hierarchy of data  within the existing  Teams' Channel.

  • Restore as a Copy: 
    • For Channel: Restore to a  new channel with name <channel_name>-INS-<count> at the root level.
    • For Files or folders: Restore to a  new folder with name <inSync Restore datetimestamp> inside the channel.

Things to consider:

  • For Files and wiki restore:
    • If the File or Wiki exists in both the inSync snapshots and Microsoft Teams, then, the File or Wiki within Microsoft Teams is replaced with the Files or Wiki selected for restore. For example, if there is a File A in inSync snapshot and Microsoft Teams, File A in Microsoft Teams is replaced with the snapshot File A.
    • If a File or Wiki exists in Microsoft Teams but is not present in the inSync snapshots, inSync retains the existing File as is in Microsoft Teams. For example, say File B is present in Microsoft Teams but is not present in inSync snapshots. After In-place Restore, File B is retained as is in Microsoft Teams.
    • If a File or Wiki exists only in inSync snapshots then, after In-place restore, inSync adds this file to Microsoft Teams. For example, if File C is not present in Microsoft Teams, it is added.
  • For Channel restore:
    • After In-Place Restore, for the channels which are permanently deleted from Microsoft Teams, a new channel is created with the same name.

Restore to a different team: Use any one of the following options:

Recover Teams Conversations data in HTML format

Currently, native or in-place restore of Teams Conversations (or Posts) is not supported due to Microsoft API limitations.

Recovery of Conversations is useful in scenarios such as accidental deletion or corruption of messages in a Channel’s Conversation. It enables administrators to quickly provide the Channel members the required information for business continuity.

As an option, Druva inSync provides administrators an option to recover the Teams Conversations in HTML format. The HTML file (generated by Druva) can be recovered in the Standard Channel in Microsoft Teams.

This HTML file can then be used to recover Conversations by administrators.

  • Currently, administrators can recover Conversations only within the Standard Channels in Microsoft Teams.
  • The HTML file (Druva generated) is also not a complete set of Conversations due to Microsoft API limitations.

The HTML file supports the following information in a Conversation: 

  • Plain text

  • Text with an attachment

  • Meeting Attachment

  • Reference File

  • Reference File Preview

  • Hero Card

  • Thumbnail Card

  • Connector Card

Location of the HTML file

The HTML file is by default downloaded at the following location in Microsoft Teams -

(Channel Name) > Files tab > inSync Post Restore > (Conversations in individual .html files)

Procedure

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Data Sources > Microsoft 365. An overview page with a holistic view of all the configured Microsoft 365 app appears.
  2. On the left-hand panel, click Teams
  3. On the Teams page, click the Team name for which you want to restore conversations. 
  4. On the Team's Summary page, click the Backups tab. From all the listed Teams' Settings and Channel list, browse and select the checkbox besides Name to select the entire Team's data (Team Settings and all Channels) for restore. You can also select a conversation folder or a specific conversation.

Note:  Regardless of selection of restore location and option, Conversations are available as  HTML file  under the Files tab inside the Channel of Microsoft Teams.

  1. Click Restore to recover conversations data in HTML format (Druva generated) under the Files tab inside the Channel of Microsoft Teams.

After the recovery is complete, log in to Microsoft Teams to view a recovered conversation.

Procedure

  1. Click the <inSync Post Restore-> folder to view the individual conversations .HTML files.
  2. Click on the specific HTML file to view the details of conversations.

Conv_html_Sep18.png

If a channel has more than 10,000 conversations, then the HTML file is split into multiple files with a numeric sequential suffix (1,2, and so on). Each HTML file includes a maximum of 10,000 Conversations.

For Example: Channel ABC has 20,000 conversations. When you perform a restore of this ABC channel, there will be two HTML files created as follows:

  1. inSyncPost_<ID>_1.html (First 10,000 conversations)
  2. inSyncPost_<ID>_2.html (Subsequent 10,000 conversations)
