File restore from a previous version of a file

This document describes how to restore files from a previous version

Restore from a previous version (only works in Windows)

This option is available on most shares on FPSA and FPSB

To restore a file or folder using this feature:

Right click on the file or folder

Click on Restore previous versions


Click on the Previous Versions tab

Click on the file or folder that you wish to restore (note that you can select from whatever time and date are available)

Click on Copy

You can now paste this file wherever the person calling requests

IMPORTANT!!! Never use the restore function, it is very easy to overwrite files and folders inadvertently and lose the person's most recent data.
