Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Exchange Online Archiving

My organization has a special mailbox for specific files to be confidential and unique uses for the proprietary information in that mailbox.
  • Import data from a .pst file with the Outlook Import and Export option
  • Drag messages from my main mailbox to the archive
  • Restore items that I have previously deleted
  • Time to restore the mailings
  • To change the characteristics of the archive I need to communicate with the administrator
  • When the administrator eliminates the mail account it also eliminates the archives created
  • Cloud storage of files
  • Security of not losing information
  • Archiving with rulers of retention and recuperation
  • I think the solution does not produce a real impact in the organization
  • I do not think that we have a real ROI
  • It does not change the overall business objectives
We use Dropbox for normal uses (share files, share information that is not critical). Cryoserver was tested by the IT team and decided that if we have 365 Exchange, we do not need Cryoserver.

It is only used for specific files that the company decides. I can not use it for other files. When the administrator deletes users from an Exchange Server, the corresponding files are also deleted. If deleted archive mailboxes need to be recovered, the Microsoft support team can perform this recovery (it is not easy to contact and the solution takes much time).
