Is it Possible to Restore Old Versions of My Files

Posted by BlackSun Jake on December 16, 2015

Certain applications such as Microsoft Word will allow you to restore older versions of your local files. On Windows, you can use the following:

**Please note that this guide is specific to Windows 7, but you will likely be able to follow it for newer versions of the Windows OS as well.**

1. Right click on the file or folder.

2. Click the ‘Previous Versions’ tab.

3. Select your restore point. If there are none listed, you will not be able to restore.

4. Click ‘Restore…’

While this can be useful, it is better to create manual backups of older versions of your files in separate documents to ensure that they are accessible.
