Microsoft has announced a yet another exciting new feature for users of OneDrive. Microsoft is expanding OneDrive version history support to all file types. This feature is also available for your OneDrive personal account and has been the highly requested features.

What this means this to you? With these changes in place, you can now see and restore older versions of all your files in your OneDrive, which previously was limited to support Office files only. So, in case you accidently edited a PDF or a CAD file or even a photo/video, you will always be able to restore or download a previous version with version history on OneDrive.

OneDrive will keep an older version of your files for 30 days. Expanded version history support has started rolling out and will be available to everyone this summer.
