    I have nothing against 'password-protected sharing links' for occasional sharing of unimportant things. However, when sharing with another Microsoft account, one can use 2nd factor auth, the recipient can change its MS account pw and so on. It is imho an essential thing to have for cloud storage. You should stop 'thinking about it' and bring back what once already worked!

    Matti's comment does not work. I can share via email and it may look like you have shared to someone with a MS account requiring login. But no, the link sent to the recipent will work without a login! TRy yourself and paste it into an icognito mode browser window.
    btw, today I noticed for the 1. time that onedrive offers to limit the lifetime of a share link.

    For those of you who have never seen or used it: Here is an article from 2014 that shows how sharing in onedrive was back then. Sharing could be restricted to a MS account with login!

    I thought the people share option disappearing would be only for short time. I am still using this feature to share files between my main and my secondary MS account. It still seems to work. Is it still secure? I dont know. Guess I have to be very careful with this not to brake something.
    MS bring it back or I am out of onedrive and in consequence also out of the rest of office365.

    I answer my own wrong assumption: While the recycle bin shows each file and folder separately , the original relation to folders is not lost! If one sorts by date and selects the files that were deleted and then restores those files, the original folder structure is recovered - thank you MS
