Resources for SharePoint 2010 Backup

How does SharePoint Backup and Restore work
I have had a few questions about this recently, SharePoint backup is a little out of my normal territory. But there are a lot of IT people who have to look after SharePoint sites who may not have this information to hand and since I’ve had questions, I have put together some resources to get you started.

How does SharePoint Backup and Restore work

I have had a few questions about this recently, SharePoint backup is a little out of my normal territory. But there are a lot of IT people who have to look after SharePoint sites who may not have this information to hand and since I’ve had questions, I have put together some resources to get you started.

Get The Point

As I have commented before this blog is part wiki, part my brain on a stick, and I hope resources and information I find useful will be of interest to you.

Having booked in for my SharePoint exam in late Spetember, I went looking for some more resources to educate myself and found Microsoft’s Get the Point. Lots of good content on Governance and Planning, readable by a non Server Guru audience. Covers Office 365 as well and includes lots of video and diagrams.

I need to find some good information on planning for SharePoint 2007 and 2010 users so will be going through this site in detail!

SharePoint Resources

Found these via references in LinkedIn Group discussions:

Productivity Hub 2010
SharePoint Productivity Hub 2007
The Microsoft site advises that “The Productivity Hub is a Microsoft SharePoint Server site collection that offers training materials for end-users.”

I am downloading them both now – looks like a bit of a project, but both sets come with instructions.

SharePoint Exam 77-886

Microsoft have released Exam 77-886: SharePoint 2010 for advanced SharePoint users, who are beyond the adding content level and use SharePoint features to create solutions. It’s a very comprehensive examination of SharePoint features. Next week I will be booking an exam for sometime in September – I will report cost etc as I proceed. I find doing a certification exam makes you “look in all the obscure corners” and get properly across all the features of a software package. Setting a date and booking an exam is a crude but effective time management tool for making sure it happens!
