Did you lose your files on the Teams app? No problem. Here are the best ways to recover those deleted files.
Did you recently delete a Teams file only to find that you might need it again? Unfortunately, accidental deletions and abrupt data losses aren’t unheard of when dealing with anything digital. Unsurprisingly, things aren’t any different for the Microsoft Teams app.
If you’ve accidentally deleted your files on Teams, you still have a recourse. In what follows, we’ll dive into the best ways to recover your deleted files on Microsoft Teams app. So let’s get started.
The Teams app stores all the files on Sharepoint, a Microsoft tool used to create websites and store files. So, whenever you want to get your Teams files, you'll have to go through SharePoint first. To access your files, click on the Files tab on Teams and then select Open in SharePoint.
This will launch the SharePoint account indexed to your Teams account. Once you’re inside the SharePoint account, click on Recycle Bin and select the file(s) that you want to restore on your PC; then click on Restore from above.
Your deleted files will be instantly restored to their original location. You can easily verify this by heading to the Documents folder and looking for the file in its original location.
The Teams app also allows you to store your files on OneDrive, Microsoft's premier file-hosting website. So if you’ve lost a One Drive file, the recovery process will be slightly the same. Here’s how.
There used to be a time not too long ago when if you lost your data, it was gone for good. Fortunately (or unfortunately)—we’ll let you be the judge—that’s not the case anymore. The steps we’ve laid out are all you’ll need to recover your deleted Teams files.
Teams has slowly soared in popularity as a reliable online communication channel. This feature to recover your deleted files is only one of the things that makes Teams a delight to use; in fact, it packs many more handy features that make it the first choice for many. So make sure you check them all out.
