Microsoft begins roll-out of Files Restore feature for SharePoint and Teams

Files Restore for SharePoint and Teams

At Ignite last year, Microsoft had announced a new Microsoft 365 feature called Files Restore for SharePoint and Microsoft Teams. The tech giant has now started to roll out this feature.

File restore for SharePoint and Microsoft Teams is a self-service recovery solution using which website owners and admins will be able to restore any file from the last 30 days.

“Data loss is non-negotiable. Period. As innovation in the cloud drives business value, it delivers new capabilities to the IT professionals and site admins who work tirelessly to support, configure, administer, and secure their organizations’ and teams’ content. And it is important that you are empowered to recover from accidental deletions or version issues at the speed business productivity requires,” wrote Mark Kashman, Senior Product Manager at Microsoft (SharePoint), in a blog post.

In the library settings panel of SharePoint, there will be a new “Restore this library” option that can be used to restore files and folders in the library which look compromised. The compromised files and folders can be a result of end-user deletion, file corruption, or malware infection.

The rollout of File Restore feature has already started and it will complete by next month. It will be available for SharePoint document libraries, allowing customers to protect the files shared in SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Outlook groups, and Yammer groups that are connected to Office 365.

Last month, the tech giant made the live events feature available in Microsoft 365, which will allow enterprises to create live and on-demand events across Microsoft Stream, Teams, and Yammer.

  1. Great news. However, as the title does not clearly state, users or administrators won’t be able to restore just a single file or a single folder. The granularity is the Document Library. So restoring a file as it was at a specific date may also restore other files.
    Based on whatever point in time you select it will bring back all changes, renames, deletions, corruptions, etc.
    Restoring just a few files or a single file would be better achieved using the site’s recycle bin or the file versioning feature.
