How do I to restore a previous version?
- Right-click the file or folder, and then click Restore previous versions.
- You’ll see a list of available previous versions of the file or folder. The list will include files saved on a backup (if you’re using Windows Backup to back up your files) as well as restore points.
- Before restoring a previous version of a file or folder, select the previous version, and then click Open to view it to make sure it’s the version you want.
- To restore a previous version, select the previous version, and then click Restore.
Notes about restoring files and folders:
- *The file or folder will replace the current version on your computer, and the replacement cannot be undone.
- To restore a previous version of a file or folder that’s included in a library, right-click the file or folder in the location where it’s saved, rather than in the library. For example, to restore a previous version of a picture that’s included in the Pictures library but is stored in the My Pictures folder, right-click the My Pictures folder, and then click Restore previous versions.
- You can’t open or copy previous versions of files that were created by Windows Backup, but you can restore them.
- If the Restore button isn’t available, you can’t restore a previous version of the file or folder to its original location. However, you might be able to open it or save it to a different location.
