Restoring data to a Modern Team Site that was converted from a Classic Team Site

How do I restore data to a Modern Team Site that was converted from a Classic Team Site?

Microsoft offers the opportunity to convert Classic Team Sites to Modern Team Sites. For more information, see Connect a classic experience SharePoint team site to a new Office 365 Group.

When this is done, it creates an Office 365 Group integrated with that Modern Team Site, but does not change the site address.

Once converted to a Modern Team Site, Rewind Backups will discover that site as an Office 365 Group, and will back up the site, subsites, lists, folders, and files of the site, along with the conversations, calendar, and notebook of the connected Office 365 Group.

Therefore, the process of restoring data to the Modern Team Site differs depending on when the data was backed up.

  • If the Site was backed up before conversion to a Modern Team Site: go to the SharePoint tab within Rewind Backups to find and restore the data.
  • If the Site was backed up after conversion to a Modern Team Site, go to the Office 365 Groups tab within Rewind Backups to find and restore the data.
