Use a Synology NAS to Backup Office 365

Now that a large majority of use have moved our Email to Office 365, we need to back it up. Luckily Synology has a cost effective solution for that.

The Short version on how you set it up is as follows


  1. Install the Active Backup for Business Office 365 from the package center.
  2. Sign into Office 365 with an Administrator Account to approve the OAuth2.0/Modern Authentication privileges.
  3. Configure the backup job.
  4. Let it run

The video also shows how to do a restore of files and has some general recommendations on what hardware to use in a business environment.

I hope you enjoy!
