Difference between “Version History” and “Files Restore” feature of OneDrive
Users must think it like the version History which is already there, but this is different feature. As version history only allows users to get back the previous versions of the files that might have been corrupted or somehow deleted.

One main point is that to use this feature your “version history” feature should be turned on, otherwise the File Restore will not work.
