You may never need to restore your OneDrive, but if lots of your files get deleted, overwritten, or infected by malware, you can restore your entire OneDrive to a previous time.

  1. Go to the OneDrive website.

  2. At the top of the page, select Settings > Restore your OneDrive from the left navigation.

  3. On the Restore page, select a date from the dropdown list or select Custom date and time.

  4. Use the activity chart and activity feed to review the recent activities that you want to undo.

Note: The Restore your OneDrive option isn't available in the classic experience of OneDrive for work or school or without a Microsoft 365 subscription.
