According to a report by The Verge, OneDrive has confirmed about the rollout and the new feature will “protect” users' files and folders from ransomware detection and recovery.

In relation this ransomware attacks the cloud service brought a Files Restore feature some time ago, to recover files from ransomware attacks, according to the publication. This service is available only for 30 days of losing the file.

The file protection feature can be enabled via OneDrive settings>Auto Save Tab> Update. After setting the enabling the feature, users can access all their documents, pictures, and folders making things much smoother.

Initially, this feature was exclusive to business users until June, only.
