OneDrive's version history now works with all file types

OneDrive is finally expanding its version history feature to cover all file types, Microsoft has announced. The highly requested feature will now allow you to easily track changes on all files, regardless of type, and restore to previous versions with a few clicks.

OneDrive's version history now works with all file types

Previously, version history only applied to Office files. Now, the feature will let you keep track of changes to everything from PDFs and CAD files to photos and videos. OneDrive will keep older versions of files for 30 days. If you sport an unintended change, or simply want to revert to a prior version of a file, you can do so by right-clicking the file and restoring through the Version History pane.

This feature has racked up a massive number of up votes on the OneDrive Uservoice page, so it's sure to be a major boon for many people. As Microsoft explains on the Uservoice, however, only around 10 percent of OneDrive users can currently see the feature. It should roll out to all OneDrive personal account users over the course of the summer.
