Hello Commvault Community,

 

Today I need information on data protection in Google shared drives.

 

Commvault licenses are purchased under which the drives of Google Workspace users are backed up.
I want to change the Google Workspace package that allows me to work with shared drives.

 

Does Commvault backup Google shared drives?

 

If so, do the current licenses we have (Cloud Apps) allow backup of Google shared drives or is it necessary to purchase others?

 

How should I configure a shared drive copy in Commvault (needs documentation for SP20)?

 

Thanks&Regards,
Kamil

Please find the documentation on GSuite

 

https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp20/article?p=30105.htm

 

Configuring team drive :  https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp20/article?p=106359.htm

 

Post SP 25 we don't allow creation of new virtual clients. Existing clients work as expected.

Let me find out more.  I can see it is only deprecated in 11.25, and the notice doesn’t give much context.

I’ll reach out to the docs team and see what they know:

Feature Release 25

Google Mail and Google Drive

You cannot create a virtual client for Google Mail and Google Drive.

@Kamil , looks like the feature has been deprecated:

We do however support google file store:

Hi @Mike Struening ,

 

Thank you for the information.

 

The current version of the environment is SP20, so at the moment it is probably supported up to SP24. However, for SP20 there isn’t solution for the Google File Store yet.

 

What solution will be the most sensible? Do I use Google Mail and Google Drive until my environment is running on the SP24 version? Can we protect shared drives with this solution now?

 

Thanks,
Kamil
