Hello community,

During a SharePoint online restore, you have an option to restore a site or a library as SharePoint native backup files.
 


Does anyone has a guide or the required steps in order to restore back (the native backup) into SharePoint online?


Thank you in advance,
Nikos

Hi @Nikos.Kyrm Unfortunately MSFT does not provide a simple method to do this. If I am not mistaken the CV process leverages migration job API
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/apis/migration-api-overview

For onprem those files can be imported using the import-spweb powershell command however this does not have a 1-1 counterpart in the SharePoint online powershell module.

I suspect MSFT support may have a way, but it appears they do not document it.
