Microsoft’s new 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. Woo hoo! If a user suspects their files have been compromised, they can investigate file changes in Restore my OneDrive.
For anyone who has fallen victim to some crypto locker attack or has just completely emptied their OneDrive recycle bin, this is restore gold! Below are a few screenshots from the announcement page at Announcing New OneDrive for Business feature: Files Restore.
This puts the end user back in control and will reduce the amount of requests to administrators for simple restores. This update begins rolling out over the next few weeks. Let us know in the comments section below what your thoughts on this new feature are.
