    To cut a long story short, my phone got broken to the point that it's completely useless and not recognized by a computer.

    The backup I have of the phone however is up-to-date (on OneDrive), so I just need to get the pictures from that backup out.

    Unfortunately I do not have another windows phone where I can do the restore and on OneDrive I do not see the option to restore it anywhere else.

    The question is how to restore the backups from OneDrive to a PC.

    Any ideas?

    if it's specifically pictures that you wish to recover, just go to onedrive > camera roll. You should find them there

    Already checked OneDrive>Fotos>Camera Roll (in my case), but it didn't seem to be up-to-date.

    then your phone might not have been able to upload the latest photos

    Pretty much what I fear. Well if that is the case, that is the case. Nothing can be done about it now.
    Thanks Anyway
