Microsoft’s OneDrive is one of the most popular cloud storage services out there. A lot of Windows and Windows Phone users are storing their most valuable files, like family photos, important business documentation, etc. on the cloud. But what if you accidentally delete some essential file from OneDrive? Don’t worry, your file is not lost forever, and there’s a way to restore it to your OneDrive again.

Just like all operating systems, and all other cloud storage services, OneDrive also has its Recycle Bin, where all deleted files go. So, to bring your deleted files back to OneDrive, you just have to restore them from the Recycle Bin.

How to Restore Deleted OneDrive Files

To recover your deleted files from OneDrive, just do the following:

  1. Go to OneDrive website, and login with your info
  2. Go to Recycle Bin
  3. Select all the files you want to restore
  4. Just click on Restore, and all your selected files will be restored to the location from where they were deleted

There’s also a way to restore your files if you deleted them from OneDrive folder in Windows 10. Just go to the Recycle Bin in Windows 10, select the file you want to restore, right-click on it, and choose Restore.

Of course, you have to make sure that you didn’t empty your Recycle Bin in OneDrive, because once you empty the Recycle Bin, there’s no way to return your files ever again (same thing goes for the Windows 10 version). So, our advice to you is to empty your Recycle Bin only if you’re sure that you won’t need files in it ever again.

As you can see, restoring your deleted files in OneDrive is simple and easy, so don’t lose your head if you accidentally delete one, because you can restore it right away. If you have any comments, or questions, just reach for the comment section below.
