Google does not provide a backup of your Google Workspace (previously known as G Suite) environment as stated here in their Shared Responsibilities Framework:

the cloud provider always remains responsible for the underlying network and infrastructure, and customers always remain responsible for their access policies and data”.

Many Google users are not clear that ultimately it is their responsibility – not to mention strongly advised by Google – to secure their own data. As such, a third-party Google Workspace backup tool is the best way to protect against accidental or malicious file deletion, other user errors, ransomware and data corruption.

These solutions store backups independently from Google servers and enable granular restores of Google Workspace files, email, calendar, contact and shared storage. They ensure that you can quickly restore and meet RPO/RTO requirements for Google Workspace data.
