What Google Workspace Data Does CloudAlly Back Up?

Modified on Sat, 23 Sep 2023 at 03:17 PM

SaaS2Cloud powered by CloudAlly backs up the following Google Workspace data:

  • Mail
  • Calendar
  • Contacts
  • Drive* and
  • Tasks
NOTE: Since Google moved Photos to a separate service in 2019, CloudAlly no longer backs up the Google Photos folder on the Google Drive.


What does SaaS2Cloud not back up?

  • SaaS2Cloudonly backs up data where the user performing the backup is the owner of the files. If someone has shared a file with you, CloudAlly does not back it up.
    Why not?
    Because then there would be multiple copies of the same file: the owner's version, and the people they shared it with.
    Additionally, there would be duplicate charges for the twice backed up data.
  • Finally, if the owner chose to remove sharing permissions, then they would not want you to have a backup copy of those files.

In summary, SaaS2cloud only backs up data belonging to the person performing the backup.
