    RESTORE a folder that only exists in skydrive(2).old


    I want to RESTORE a folder that only exists in skydrive(2).old on my desktop running Win 8.1

    Hello Mr. Barnard, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If this was just a folder that you had created in your SkyDrive folder, then you could just create the folder in your current SkyDrive again, and copy the contents from the skydrive(2).old location into it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
