Missing files in one drive (using Windows 11)

Copper Contributor



I save all my files to one drive and I still had a couple on my pc (some school work) so I moved them to one drive and when I go into the folder it now says it is empty!!!

Where did my files go and can they be retrieved???


Thank you in advanced for your help.

Hi, The Microsoft account is assigned to OneDrive - so you need to check not in a folder on your computer, but on the cloud drive to which you transferred your personal files, so the question of whether they are there or in the school account - please check it.

write what you think? 

Of course, you can download them again from OneDrive and save them to your computer 

Best regards

@A1-A1 I thought I was supposed to save every to one drive and not to my computer…
