CodeTwo Backup for Exchange

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange


Granular backup and recovery tool for Exchange Server and SharePoint


CodeTwo Backup for Exchange is a secure, all-in-one Microsoft Exchange mailbox, public folders and SharePoint backup solution that lets you create and manage backup copies of your data and store it on your local drives. This server app also performs data restore operations on all levels of granularity – from individual items to whole mailboxes or SharePoint sites. The smart item versioning mechanism lets you undo data loss or damage caused by user errors and other factors.


Key benefits



Automatic backup of Exchange mailboxes

Easily managed automatic backup of Exchange mailboxes, including archive (in-place archive) mailboxes. Use CodeTwo Backup for Exchange's graphical console to schedule incremental backups, perform one-time archiving actions, browse through backed up mailboxes, recover deleted items, restore data to original or new locations, and more.



Automatic backup of Exchange public folders

Create backup copies of public folders and save them to your local storages. Stay assured that no vital emails, contacts, calendars or any other items are permanently deleted from your Exchange organization. 



Automatic backup of SharePoint data

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange lets you create automatic backup copies of SharePoint 2016 and 2013 data and keep it safe on another location. You can keep copies of entire site collections, individual sites, libraries, and even single files. Then, easily restore SharePoint data to the same or another location any time you need.



Support for Microsoft 365

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange allows you to back up and restore Microsoft 365 data as well, i.e. Exchange Online mailboxes and public folders, SharePoint Online site collections and team sites, as well as OneDrive for Business user data.



Migrate SharePoint

Use CodeTwo Backup for Exchange to migrate the content from one on-premises SharePoint instance to another. The program will let you easily download data from the source SharePoint environment and then restore it to a different SharePoint site, library, or folder, on the same or another environment.



Multiple backup scenarios

You can configure the application to run cyclic incremental backups of your mailboxes and public folders, or perform a one-time backup job creating a snapshot of your mailbox and/or public folders database. CodeTwo Backup for Exchange operates in the background and is invisible to end-users.



Efficient and reliable

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange keeps backed up data in storages that are more efficient in terms of data allocation, and easier to browse and manage than built-in Microsoft Exchange repositories. The application lets you create multiple points of recovery, ensuring that all versions of your data are there when you need them most.



Incremental backups

Set CodeTwo Backup for Exchange to create recurring incremental backups of mailboxes and public folders. The first cycle will create a full copy of the selected scope of data. In consecutive cycles, the program will only add layers containing changes in Exchange mailboxes and/or public folders.



Storage archiving and exports to PST

Ensure 100% security of your data by running automatic archiving jobs on storages. You can also set CodeTwo Backup for Exchange to export backed-up Exchange data to PST files, letting you diversify your backup.



Retention policies

Manage used disk space by defining retention policies for your storages, archives and PST exports.



Centrally managed

One computer and an account with Domain Admin credentials are all you need to gain full control over backup copies of all mailboxes and public folders in your organization. No PowerShell scripts and additional tools are necessary.



Brick-level backup copies

Run backup jobs for selected mailboxes, items older or younger than a defined number of days, or specific folder types. CodeTwo Backup for Exchange creates backup copies which reflect the structure of source mailboxes. Items can be easily found and previewed in the program's graphical Administration Panel.



Granular recovery

Thanks to the granularity of backup copies created by the application, its administrator can easily restore data in bulk or on a one-by-one basis. With the point in time restoration feature in place, successive versions of data can be browsed, previewed and restored at will.



User-friendly search tools

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange comes with a filter-assisted search tool and with full preview of backed up items. You can filter items on the basis of keywords, time frames and other item attributes.



Restore items to source or other location

By default, CodeTwo Backup for Exchange suggests restoring items to the folder they were downloaded from. But you can also tell the program to restore data to other folders (even newly created) or even different mailboxes.



All folder types

You can back up all types of Exchange folders, be they email, contacts, calendars, tasks, journals or notes. It's also possible to exclude special folders such as Junk E-mail from being backed up.



Support for physical and virtual machines

Choose which option is the most convenient for you and install the program on your local PC or a Windows-based virtual machine on-prem or in the cloud (e.g. on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine).



Minimize expenses and maximize efficiency

You can back up multiple Exchange and SharePoint servers using the same license key. Deploy CodeTwo Backup for Exchange on any number of computers, create multiple backup repositories, and automate all your backup and recovery administration tasks in your organization.



Invisible to end-users

The application communicates directly with your mailbox servers and does not interrupt the availability of services. This lets users carry on working while the backup is performed.

Why CodeTwo Backup for Exchange is secure?


CodeTwo Backup for Exchange is a solution developed to help companies secure their emails, contacts, calendars, and other Exchange mailbox contents, as well as public folders and SharePoint. See how the program protects your business data.





ISO/IEC 27001 & 27018

All features of the program that relate to security are implemented in accordance with our Information Security Management System (ISMS) that is compliant with ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018. This means, among other things, that each change or update to the program is made with data security in mind and that all security options are always active by default. To guarantee the maximum protection of your personal data, the ISMS is also routinely audited and improved.


Data encryption

To ensure data security, CodeTwo Backup for Exchange encrypts data while its being backed up. Each backup copy and archive file created by the program is encrypted as well. As a result, a user who is not allowed to read and edit the backup contents will not be able to access it.


Recovery key to deal with unexpected events

Just in case the password that protects the storage is lost, the program generates a special Recovery key that lets you recover data inside that storage. Although this scenario may not be very likely to happen, the program is already prepared to help you out.


Storages protected with password

Corporate data should not be accessed by anyone who is not allowed to manage it. That is why CodeTwo Backup for Exchange gives you an option to protect each storage with a password so that no unauthorized person can access and modify its contents.


Diagnostics and monitoring

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange has been equipped with a notification and real-time diagnostic mechanism to keep you informed on events that you want to know about. The program reports the results of the backup process directly in the Administration Panel or sends you important notifications directly to your email address so that you can react in a timely manner.


No third party keeps your Exchange mailbox data

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange operates directly in your environment and saves all the backed-up data to your company’s local storage. This means that no person from outside the company or from a third-party service can see your emails, contacts, calendars or other mailbox data. Only authorized employees or administrators will be able to access the data storage to manage all backup copies.


Invisible to end users

When the program backs up Exchange mailboxes, end users can work as usual with no interruptions. There is no risk of losing or damaging emails, contacts, calendars or other items while the backup process is performed on mailboxes currently in use.


Reliable and solid backups

The program guarantees high reliability and stability of backups in case any piece of data needs to be quickly browsed and recovered. CodeTwo Backup for Exchange also allows you to run automatic backup jobs that will work continuously or at the scheduled time periods to make sure that company backups are constantly updated with new mailbox, public folders or SharePoint data.


Secure data restoration

There would be no point in creating backups if you could not quickly recover the backed-up data or could not restore it at all. CodeTwo Backup for Exchange ensures efficient and secure data restoration when it is needed. You can easily recover even single emails to comply with both legal and internal requirements.


24-hour technical support

No matter when you find it necessary to contact our support team, CodeTwo highly trained technicians are at your disposal 24 hours a day, five days a week.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How does CodeTwo Backup for Exchange work?

CodeTwo Backup for Exchange can be deployed on any Windows 7 (or newer) or Windows Server 2008 (or newer) machine within your domain. It connects with your servers via Exchange Web Services (EWS) and SharePoint API to back up mailboxes, public folders and on-premises SharePoint data to an in-house storage. The admin using the program must have impersonation rights granted on users' mailboxes. The admin using the program must be assigned specific roles or given necessary access rights to back up Exchange and SharePoint data.


Backups are based on jobs which have 3 customizable properties: location of the backup; scope of data to be archived (defined using a wide range of criteria); start and end time of the backup job.


2 types of backup jobs are available: one-time and continuous. Continuous backups are performed in cycles. The first cycle creates a backup copy of all the data that meets the criteria defined by the admin. Subsequent cycles create only incremental layers in places where changes have been introduced.


Restoring data is possible on virtually every level: starting with items or attachments, through folders, ending with entire mailboxes. As for SharePoint, the program allows you to restore entire site collections, individual sites, lists, libraries, folders or single items. The target location of a restore action can also be chosen freely. It can another SharePoint server or even Office 365 tenant.


Does CodeTwo offer storage for mailbox backup copies?

No, we don't. All mailbox backup copies must be stored on your own drives.
