    If you mean your computer's OneDrive as in the Micro$oft OneDrive program, have you looked on-line at Personal Cloud Storage – Microsoft OneDrive​ ?
    Specifically in the One Drive on-line Recycle bin. One Drive maintains deleted files for about 30 days if I remember correctly.

        If it's in the trash, right click and "Restore"

        Once restored, or from the directory where you found it, Right click over the folder and select "Always keep on this device"

        If you like what you see here at Trainsim.com, be it the discussions and knowledge in the forums, items saved in our library or the ongoing development of our TSRE Fork, I hope you'll consider a paid membership to help support keeping the site operating.... Thanks!

          If those files are gone, kaput, and you kept records off all your transactions, try contacting BLW and tell him what happened. Years ago my computer burped and I lost all my BLW files. Even my backups got wiped out. No idea what happened..... I emailed BLW my receipts explaining what happened and they sent all the files I lost. Not a guarantee you can get them replaced, but worth a shot.

            It worked for me. Gaeten and Rick were very kind. Just ask politely and it will be done.
            Thank you!

              If they were in your on-line OneDrive Recycle bin: Click "Restore All" if they are the only ones in the bin or Select all you want to restore and Click the "Restore" button.

              FYI if you do as Eric suggested that will keep them in 2 places (on-line and on your HD).

                  My thing these days is TSC. Back when I was messing with MSTS, my main files where in the old TRAINSET folder and I had backups on 3 external drives. That being said, copy your folder and contents back to where you had it, or copy it to a new location along with at least one backup if you have the disk space. External drives are ideal for backup folders.

                      You will make life much easier by moving anything related to ORTS and MSTS outside of folders controlled by OneDrive. I've mentioned that in the installation tutorials here.

                      Having a backup copy of your files in a OneDrive folder isn't a bad idea, but your working copy should not be in a OneDrive controlled folder unless you've explicitly set it to keep a local copy as I mentioned above.

                        I Had the Downloads in My Train Simulator Folder on my Desktop so I Could Access them Easily. Then all of a Sudden all these Old Folders Popped up on My Desktop from OneDrive and I Deleted them and in the Mess of Folders Being Moved Around I Deleted the Train Simulator Folder Too. I Don't Use OneDrive and I Wish My System Didn't Have it. Why Can't they leave Well Enough Alone and Not Put All these Extra Programs in the Computer,
                        If I Need to I'll Just Purchase the Ones I Need to reinstall.
                        Thankyou,

                          Yeah. My wife's computer is like that. Files move and programs run when she does do a thing that would cause that.

                            OneDrive has a purpose, unfortunately Microsoft and Apple both make decisions for the consumer without bothering to ask if that's what you wanted.

                            You should be able to restore deleted items within 30 days.

                              You can get rid of one drive. Backup to USB drives.
