How do I restore a OneDrive document to an earlier version?

As you create and edit documents using Office 365 online, they are automatically saved to your OneDrive location as a "version". If you have been working on a document for some time, you will have a number of versions saved. You are able to compare earlier versions of a document with the latest version to see what has changed. You can then restore the document to an earlier version.

  1. Open Office365, and click OneDrive.
  2. Find the document in the list, then click on the  icon
  3. An overview of the document will open. Click on the icon within that overview window.
  4. Click Version History.
  5. You will be presented with the version history dialog box. Click on the relevant time stamp under Modified to open the document within the application - this will allow you to check if this is the correct version you would like to restore the document back to.
  6. Click the small down facing arrow next to the time stamp, then click Restore.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Close the version history dialog box.
