    OneDrive Syncing!

    Hi everyone,
    I have accidentally permanently deleted my one drive folder on my laptop, thankfully my one drive syncing client was closed.
    How do I securely get my files back on my laptop, without messing up my one drive cloud. Please reply ASAP!

    P.S. I have around 3 GB of personal files and work files on one drive that i need back, and I am using a one drive for business account.

    Thanks Arnav!

    Unlink OneDrive, recreate your folders, then choose what you want to sync, then relink. it.
    While you are at it, you can place OneDrive in another location(partition or disk).
