WIN 7 Versioning

Helpful Hints, Warnings | Posted by Dennis November 21st, 2011

Remember what I said about changed files?  How, for example, an Outlook file stays in place, so emails you delete are simply GONE?  That’s true, but the new Windows 7 has a way to help.  If you have a scenario like this, perhaps even a draft of a document that you changed for the worse, there’s a new thing called RESTORE PREVIOUS VERSION that’s only available in Windows 7.  It was designed for this type of problem, so that you can go back in time to retrieve files that might have otherwise been irreversibly damaged or changed.  These are ONLY CREATED WTIH RESTORE POINTS or windows backups.   You can restore previous versions under Control Panel, System Protection.
