How do I restore a file along with its revision history?

You cannot restore a file with its revision history. Since files have unique IDs, the restored file will have a different ID from the original file. You can choose a previous version of file from the backup application.

However, you can restore only a copy of the document without the version history. Click here to view the steps for restoring a copy of a Google Drive document or OneDrive document.
