Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365

Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is a backup solution from Veeam that can be used to back up Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams. The manufacturer advertises the protection of Microsoft 365 data against accidental deletion and security threats and promises fast recovery.

However, there have been problems with older versions of this backup solution since the beginning of April 2024. The attempt to back up Office 365 mailboxes and TEAMS with Veeam Backup for Office365 ends with an error message "Not allowed to access Non IPM folder." I had addressed this in the blog post Veeam Backup O365: Fails during backup of Office 365 (April 2024) and also presented a workaround (exclude folder). But now Veeam seems to have fixed the problem with cumulative updates.
