Restoring Previous File Versions on S: Drive

Technology Tutorials | Restoring Previous File Versions on S: Drive



To restore files from previous versions of your S: drive folder, open the My Computer (shown as “username on nodename” example: “rlh014 on AB1-1-111”) option on the Start Menu.


Windows Explorer

Right-click on the S: drive folder and choose Restore Previous Versions from the pop-up menu.


On this tab, there is a list of several previous versions of the S: drive folder. Choose the one that you want to work with by clicking it.

Restore Previous Versions



  • View will allow you to open the folder and view the files inside.
  • Copy will copy the entire folder to a location that you choose.
  • Restore will restore the previous version folder to the current  S: drive, overwriting the existing files.

Please copy the folder or file that you are wanting to restore into a new location so that you do not overwrite any of the other files.
