Restore a File in OneDrive

We’re celebrating April showers this month and the cloud that brings them! Our Tuesday Tips for April will focus on Office 365, Microsoft's online cloud service.

Using OneDrive, sharing files from it, and collaborating on those files has already had a positive impact on our campus. Allowing everyone to work on the most recent version of a document is handy, although sometimes a shared document may need to return to a previous version; that’s where versioning comes in handy.

Versioning allows you to:

  • Track when a file was changed and by whom
  • View previous versions and compare
  • Restore a previous version

For more information, check out Microsoft’s instructions on restoring a previous version of a document.
