    I would like to ask if there is any way I could retrieve my backup.
    Instead of asking to select a backup from onedrive, my phone prompted me to back it up.
    Any help there guys?

    I think you misunderstand something.
    Your phone "asked" you to make a backup.
    During this your phone makes a backup from your apps and settings.
    So if you have to do a factory reset it can use this backup to restore your phone.
    In settings you can also set that these "safety" backups are made automatically.
    Be aware that this backup only is valid for apps and settings.

    No. I made a back up already. I made a hard reset on my phone. Then after it opened, it asked to back up, instead of letting me select a previous backup.

    It's probably asking if it should now make backups in its "new" state.

    Yep. Then that made an overwrite of my older backup. How can I recover the old one?
