I suggest you ...

Enable file versioning / history for all types of files (not just Office types)

I know you can recover previous versions of Microsoft Office files in OneDrive. But in Dropbox and Google Drive, you can recover previous versions of any file type (and this has been a long standing feature of these services). Please give us the ability to restore previous versions of any file type in OneDrive.

boom! it's done  ·  John Rodrigues responded  · 

We are expanding version history support to all file types for OneDrive personal account users. As a result, customers will now be able to restore or download previous versions of all their files for up to 30 days. It will be available to everyone this summer; currently, approximately 10% of OneDrive users can see and interact with this feature.

You can read more about file versioning and how to use it on our blog:

    When there is versioning, OneDrive can finally be my backup service. It seems weird that I need to pay for an online backup in addition to OneDrive (never mind the bandwidth).

    Ya, you have Versioning in SharePoint (Ask for technology already used by another department) and you also have Previous Versions that is in Microsoft Windows / Server, again, another department to talk with and get some technology / software that is already available!
