Did you accidentally delete a OneDrive file? Here’s how to recover it.

OneDrive and other cloud backup services allow us to update our files on all devices. If your chosen PC uses Windows, it is very likely that you are using OneDrive as a storage app: it is natively supported, after all, and it is easier to go with the flow than to fight the current. That said, what happens when backups fail? Since people can delete files from their hard disks, there’s nothing that prevents you or a child in error from deleting an important file from OneDrive.
Fortunately, you can save an accidentally deleted file if you need to delete it with some warnings.

First of all, if you’re eliminating a lot of large files, OneDrive can simply delete them permanently rather than storing them in the trash. Secondly, there is a 30-day trial period, after which the files are automatically deleted if you want them to be, or not.

How to restore deleted files on OneDrive

OneDrive File Restore

On Cloud

  1. Open the OneDrive Web app and scan the right panel/menu based on the size of the current window.
  2. There, you will see the basket. Microsoft has transmitted the same Windows metaphors to its web-app to make it almost easy to navigate.
  3. Click on it and find the files you are looking for.
  4. Select Restore selection.

On Windows.

  1. While Windows shares a web-like workflow, the leash is longer here because the 30-day limit does not exist. Files deleted from the OneDrive folder on Windows are diverted to the local trash.
  2. To restore files deleted by OneDrive, simply scan the recycle bin for the file and click Restore.

NB: Files deleted on one platform cannot always be restored to another platform, so it is not possible to delete a file on Windows and then restore it from the cloud or vice versa.
