Hello Veeam,

In Veeam 365 backup for SharePoint online, I see that can backup the SP online sites and also has a category for “Personal Sites”.

Can anyone explain what is these Personal Sites and where can I find them in SharePoint admin portal?

I couldn't found any explanation even in Veeam documentation about Personal Sites.

Thank you in advance,
Nikos

Hi, personal sites are OneDrive 🙂 as it uses SharePoint as it’s backend

The long answer is there can also be personal sites, but OneDrive is included in this and it’s the primary thing being backed up

Dear @MicoolPaul  thanks a lot for your quick reply!

I know that OneDrive backed is the SharePoint, but in my tests trying to restore a personal site (from Veeam 365 SP explorer) I cannot see any of actually OneDrive files!

I see only Subsites empty directory and some other default directories in Contents (check below)

That’s why I'm confusing!
