OneDrive Files Restore

blog0 comments

Keeping your files safe and secure is Microsoft’s top priority and they offer customers trusted enterprise-grade compliance and security.

Office 365 administrators are also empowered to safeguard their organisation’s data using capabilities such as Data Loss Prevention, eDiscovery, service level encryption, and data retention controls with consistent management across Office 365.

Even with this level of sophistication, files could still be compromised due to accidental end-user deletion, file corruption, or malware infection. Until now the recovery process from such an event could take time and potentially result in data loss.

From this, in January this year, Microsoft released “Files Restore” for OneDrive for Business customers.

Files Restore is a complete self-service recovery solution that allows administrators and end users to restore files from any point in time during the last 30 days. Now both users and administrators can choose their own restore point for data recovery.

To use Files Restore, simply:
• log into your OneDrive for Business web portal
• Choose Settings
• Choose Restore OneDrive
• From here, you will see a graph showing all the file activity over the last 30 days
