Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Office 365 subscription, you can download your data—for example, your

with your Office 365 account will be available to your administrator(s) in a
limited function account for 90 days.
Can I switch to other Office 365 plans?
Yes. If you need to upgrade, you can transition your account to a different plan. For example, you can upgrade from an Office
365 Business plan to an Office 365 Enterprise plan.
In most cases, you can use the Switch plans wizard in your Admin center to upgrade your plan. If your subscription has more
than 300 users or if you used a prepaid card to purchase your plan, the Switch plans
wizard is not available. Plans that are not eligible for the Switch plans wizard
can be upgraded manually. Learn more about
