If lots of your Microsoft SharePoint or Teams files get deleted, overwritten, corrupted, or infected by malware, you can restore an entire shared library to a previous time. 

  1. Go to the SharePoint document library you'd like to restore. (In Microsoft Teams, from the Files tab at the top of your channel, select More > Open in SharePoint.)

  2. Select Settings  Settings icon  > Restore this library.

  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.

  5. Select Restore to undo all the activities you selected.
