    Announcing New OneDrive for Business feature: Files Restore

    Last Updated: 22 Jan 2018 at 12:05

    Keeping your files safe and secure our top priority. With 100+ data centers and Microsoft’s global network edge—combined with compliance standards, we offer customers trusted enterprise-grade compliance and security. Additionally, we empower administrators to safeguard organizational data using capabilities such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP), eDiscovery, service level encryption with customer-owned keys (currently in preview), and data retention controls with consistent management across Office 365.

    Even with this level of sophistication, there are occasions where your files could 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. That’s why we are excited to announce Files Restore for our 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. If a user suspects their files have been compromised, they can investigate file changes in Restore my OneDrive.

    From accidental deletion to data corruption and infection by malware, losing content can completely disrupt a business. Keeping your data safe has always been a top priority. While SharePoint Online has always had a support-driven process to recover content it can take days or weeks and multiple hops to go through. That is why we are so excited to announce that OneDrive File Restore, a complete self-service recovery solution to allow content owners to go back in time to any second in the last 30 days is now rolling out to our customers. Now your users and your administrators can rewind changes using activity data to find the exact moment to revert to.

    To use Files Restore, all a user needs to do is choose Settings and then Restore OneDrive

    OneDrive Settings Pane

    Users are presented with a histogram showing file activity over the last 30 days with an intuitive slider to “rewind” those changes.

    They can then easily select the file or files to restore from that point in time.

    The user then is prompted with a date range as well as the number of files to restore. The user chooses to restore and the files are then restored back into the users OneDrive.

    As you can see, Files Restore for OneDrive for Business can save time and stress when file loss occurs, putting end users in control.

    This capability starts rolling out today to all OneDrive for Business users and will continue to roll out over the next few weeks.
