We are using it mainly for list and library migration from one site to another. It is almost impossible to move large lists with attachments with just Microsoft tools, including PowerShell. SharePoint sites were not configured correctly the first time, and many lists and libraries had to be migrated. CodeTwo licenses per user, so site migration is a good use case - you can remove most users rights to the site before taking the backup.
  • Back up SharePoint online
  • Restore SharePoint online
  • Lists with attachments
  • Will create new list from backup
  • Can combine two lists into one
  • None offhand
  • This is really a solid product
Well suited for backup/restore. Well suited for migrating large lists/libraries. Best available for large lists with attachments. Maybe not the best solution for regular backups - as that requires storage, and storage is probably why you migrated to M365 in the first place.
  • Migrate lists and libraries
  • Migrate lists with attachments
  • Great ROI - only needed 10 licenses to do migrations
  • No negative impact
  • ShareGate and AvePoint SharePoint & Microsoft 365 Migration
CodeTwo is kind of an entry-level product, and that's all we needed. The other available solutions were really overkill; they have features we didn't need and the price tag to support those features.

We use CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 as an organization wide compliment to the built in Backup/restore functionality that comes with Office 365. The most important benefit for us is a much easier interface in restoring files vs. using the default MS offering. It is much more intune with looking like a Backup Exec type product and removes the unneeded requirement of having to use Powershell for what should be more simple operations.
  • Takes the unneeded extra technical knowhow out of restoring for lower level IT employees.
  • Like other CodeTwo products, it is very easy to setup and confirm it is working.
  • Allows the ability to restore mail from one users folder to another. A great feature most products like this do not have.
  • Licensing and pricing is very friendly for cost strapped businesses.
  • Has throttling capability to avoid throwing a red flag with your tenant's settings.
  • The reporting is very simplistic and not up to par with how good the rest of the product is.
  • As far as I know, there is no cloud/SaaS option so you must designate a local workstation or machine to host it.
  • Archive mailboxes cannot be backed up. That is actually a fairly large issue.
  • Support online is a bit lacking since it is not used by a larger userbase at this point.
CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 is the rare type of software that works for both SMB's and larger businesses. The built in backup and restore features of Office 365 are too rudimentary and PowerShell based to allow lower level IT people the ability to use them. CodeTwo opens the door to allowing day to day helpdesk employees the ability to assist customers with restore needs. As with anything Office 365, there is a limit on how well is works with the system and CodeTwo does not backup Archive mailboxes so if your organization is one that uses them extensively, you should go into the deal realizing that archive restores would still need to use the built in MS offerings.
  • Brick level/single email, OneDrive or SharePoint file restores.
  • A very easy to use GUI which simplifies the day day use of restore procedures.
  • Ability to PST users mailboxes.
  • Scheduling/automation of backup jobs.
  • It allows us the ability to maintain some lower level IT employees and lower the load on level 3 support...lessening our overhead salaries.
  • The ease to use interfaces speeds up the ability to restore data which in turn gives our users a heads up on doing what they need to do without having to wait for fixes/restores.
  • The cost of a lost file(s) is almost immeasurable. Having this extra layer of protection is such a benefit, we often mention it to our customers as a benefit of working with us.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication
Although Veeam's offerings are somewhat similar in trying to add additional layers of protection, on the Microsoft's default offerings, the CodeTwo product was more situated to do what we wanted which was brick level back up and restores of single files and emails. Veeams offering is more backend server/virtual machine savvy.

We are using it for a couple of clients to back up their Office 365 mailboxes. The client has long-term retention needs for email, and this was a good option for them to back up and keep for long periods of time.
  • reliable
  • Easy to set up
  • Application is lightweight
  • requires local storage
  • notifications
  • need to be able to store in cloud
Code two works well and will allow you to back up for long retention periods. However, there is a need for local storage. So if you want to keep those backups for long terms, for our client 30 years, then a lot of storage space is needed.
  • reliable backups
  • long retention
  • archiving
  • Requires physical storage space
  • Does not require much for the app to run
  • Doesn't need a lot of maintenance
Code two works well and is pretty easy to use. As long as you have the storage space for the backups it works great. If you lose that local storage however then you've lost those backups. Allowing for me to offload those backups to cloud storage (Azure, AWS) would make this a really good solution.
