Find lost or missing files in OneDrive

Search for your files on OneDrive online

If you have Files On Demand enabled, or if you choose to only sync certain folders, going online will allow you to search all your files and folders.

  1. Select the blue OneDrive icon, choose More, then View online.

  2. Use Search OneDrive to look for your files.

Look in the Recycle bin

  1. On the left side of the page, click Recycle bin.

  2. If you find the item you're looking for, select it and choose Restore at the top of the page. If you cannot find the item in a long list, you may choose to Restore all items at the top of the page.

  3. OneDrive for Business users can restore their entire OneDrive to a previous time. Go to your OneDrive online Settings to undo all the actions that occurred on both files and folders within the last 30 days.
