Restoring a file on an on-domain Windows computer

H:\ drive (your home directory) and M:\ drives (shared network repositories) are backed up daily. Backups of the last 14 days can be retrieved by following these steps from a Windows PC that is on domain or has the network drive mounted.


  1. Open File Explorer (manilla folder icon).
  2. Select the desired network drive and select Properties.  Alternately, right-click the drive and select Properties.
    Select Properties
  3. From the Properties window select the Previous Versions tab.
  4. Select the date of the backup you are looking for and select Open
    Previous Versions
  5. This opens an explorer window with previous versions of the files and directories. For example, you can see of a backup of an H: drive from 2 hours previous.
    Choose Files
  6. Copy and paste or drag and drop files/directories to another location to restore these files.
