New member | Level 2

We have numerous files which have partially relocated themselves in a different folder meaning half is in the orignal location and have somehwere else.  We have no idea how or why this has happened but need them back where they are supposed to be.

Re: MOVING FILES AROUND

Hi there, are these files in a shared or team folder? If so, most likely another member on your team moved the files, and you can check this out in the version history.
 
The following image shows how to see the history, feel free to ignore the option to restore the file (as this is for deleted files).

If the files aren’t in a shared folder, then it’s possible that another app on your computer moved the files for some reason.
 
Let me know what you find out!
