Versioning is enabled for OneDrive. Versioning creates a record of all changes to files indicating the date/time of the change and the user that made the change. Previous versions of files can be restored through File Explorer or the OneDrive web client. Restoring a previous version will replace the current version.

 

Note: As a best practice, PST files should not be uploaded on OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online team site document libraries due to the impact on storage. If PST files are uploaded, the service will only retain versions for 30 days.
