You can restore a previous version of an existing file.


Verify that you have access permissions for the location to which to write. If you do not, you are redirected to My Documents.


  1. Right-click a file in Windows Explorer and select Restore previous versions.
  2. Select the archive file version to restore.

    If the file exists, the File size and Modify time are updated with the file’s archive information.

  3. Click Restore.
  4. Browse to the required location and save the file.

    The default path is the original file location.
