If I need to restore an older version of a file from the shadow copy on the Windows 2008 R2 file server, I need to select the the parent directory of the file and view the previous versions that then can be copied etc.  However if I select the file and the select view previous version then the shadow copy will state that there are no previous version to display

  • Why do you need to select the file's previous versions instead of the folder? Just to clarify, you are saying that Shadow Copy lets you open a previous version of the folder? Just pull the file from that folder if I'm understanding correctly.
  • I agree with srober99's statement. Just copy it from the parent folder's previous version.
