How to Restore Deleted Files or Revert to Previous Versions When Using the Free Version of Microsoft Teams

In a previous blog post, we discussed how to restore a deleted file or previous version of a file using the fully licensed version of Microsoft Teams.  However, when using the free version the process is not exactly the same.

Restoring Deleted Files or Reverting to Previous Versions in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has been a great tool for providing a better communication channel for our team. What happens, though, when someone deletes a file from a channel and you need to get it back?

Finding Members & Owners of an Office 365 Group or Microsoft Team

Azure Sign-In Error Code 50140
