Periodic Data Backup to Your Cloud Accounts | Zoho Vault

Integration with Cloud Storage Services (Data Backup)

Backup copies of your data from Zoho Vault usually get sent to your email, when enabled. Vault also allows you to organize all your backup copies in one place by sending them to your cloud storage services. In this document, we'll cover the steps for admins to enable cloud backup for their users. The following cloud storage services are supported:

  • Amazon S3
  • Box
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • OneDrive
  • Zoho Workdrive

Note: 

  • If Zoho Vault is unable to communicate with your cloud service, an encrypted copy of the data will be periodically sent to the corresponding users' registered email address until the configuration settings are corrected. 
  • At any instance, backup copies can be sent to only one cloud account.
