What's the Best OneDrive Backup Solution

Many users mistakenly think that OneDrive is a backup solution. But, it is not the case. OneDrive is just a file hosting service that allows users to upload and sync files to a cloud storage and then access them from a Web browser or their local device. It is mostly used by users to access and manage files from multiple devices or share files with families and friends.

As a matter of fact, all the data requires saving in a local OneDrive folder before syncing to OneDrive. And any change of the files on the local hard drive will be synced to OneDrive. That means if you deleted a file in local OneDrive folder, it will be removed from OneDrive at the same time. In view of this, we don't think OneDrive is a reliable backup solution for data backup. So we recommend you to try a third-party backup and recovery software to backup files to OneDrive.
