You can recover/restore files from user's OneDrive recycle bin. Deleted files are stored in the bin for 93 days.

user needs to go to the website version:

https://onedrive.live.com/

once loaded on the left hand side menu at the bottom click on "Recycle Bin" -> select item and restore:

EDIT

4 months ago is pushing it. Depends on when the user was deleted? by the sounds of it it was provisioned a month ago which goes inline with the files missing as it takes 30 day to provision. Files might still exist.

to restore the user. Go to central admin -> under users on the left hand side select "deleted users" -> select the given user and hit restore:

go to https://portal.office.com/adminportal/home?rc=1

then

finally assign password to user.

now login to one drive:

https://onedrive.live.com/

find the file and restore -> save file in SharePoint or 365 group.

  • User left 4 month before and shared file was in another user's OneDrive seen last time one month before. Now user suddenly saw that file disappeared. I tried above mentioned things, there no Files on the Recycle Bin. I tried to get deleted user by the PowerShell but no chances. I think 90 days left, but I can see still deleted user name on the system by the PowerShell. But I can't access his OneDrive. Do you know how can I access to deleted user ONeDrive? – J.U Jan 9 '18 at 10:28
  • ahh might be a little late though but you could try. Do you have central admin access on 365? – Ali Jafer Jan 9 '18 at 11:19
