Why do you need a backup of Google Workspace at all? Doesn't Google do this?

As a Google Workspace organization, your business relies on your data. The importance of protecting your most valuable asset cannot be overstated.

Data loss is inevitable

The data security of your organization is crucially important, and it is only a matter of time before something goes wrong. User error, hackers, disgruntled employees, or simply the confusion of data transition from job turnover, can all lead to the loss of your valuable data.

Google’s own restore feature is not enough

Although Google Workspace has a feature which allows you to restore deleted Google Drive files and Gmail data, it only allows you to restore data that was deleted within the past 25 days. Here are some other limitations of Google’s restore feature:

  1. Data cannot easily be merged between two Google Workspace users, which is often necessary when an employee leaves your company and someone else must take over that employee’s duties.

  2. Folder structure in Google Drive or Shared drives cannot be restored.

  3. There is no version history for non-Google native files. If Google Drive Backup and Sync is used inside of your company, files modified by local applications will have no version history to be recovered. Only the latest version of the file will be kept on Google’s cloud. This means that PDFs, text files, and even Microsoft Office files in many cases, cannot be restored to a previous version.

  4. Deleted trash or spam data cannot be restored.

Don’t rely on Google’s simplistic recovery to secure your data; a more professional backup solution is needed.
