Restore Onedrive from a local hdd backup


Recommended Posts

My normal Onedrive folder on my PC HDD has an issue (Type. 1117) and I cannot copy files locally. This seems to be related to bad clusters on my HDD.

I have a backup of Onedrive on an external HDD from 1 month ago.

So if I replace my internal PC HDD, copy the one month old backup from the External drive onto the new drive, set it to be the Onedrive folder will i risk damaging the cloud version. In conflicts will the cloud version win? Can I somehow set this?

Otherwise downloading 700GB and that could take weeks.

32gb ram, 1tb SSD, 4tb HDD

latest version of Win 10 Pro.

Any help greatfully recieved.
