List Copy Options

Backup content with:

Include Permissions - this option will include SharePoint site, list, and item level permissions from each uniquely permissioned object.

Include Versions - this option will allow you to specify how many versions of each item to include with the backup.  If left unchecked, no versions will be included, if "Include All Versions" is selected then all versions will be included. If "Include Most recent versions" is selected then only the number of versions specified will be included, starting with the most recent and working backwards (major and minor versions are included).

Advanced Options

Apply Filter - this option will allow you to customize a filter to include/exclude content based on metadata.
Smart Backup - This functionality is only available for Hyper Backups, which can only be performed for OneDrive and SharePoint sites. This feature aids users in saving space on storage. It uses the MD5 algorithm to scan backup files and excludes duplicates.  The MD5 message-digest algorithm is used as a checksum to verify data integrity. If the checksum for files is the same, Essentials will save only one file instead of storing two equal files. Click here for more information on Smart Backups.


Admin Management

Users can change the Administrative accounts associated with a backup. This option is available from the right click menu.
