Folder-wise restore of files with earlier versions

To restore a folder with earlier versions of files, you can right click on the required folder and choose Restore Versions, under which you have the following menu options:
  • Most Recent - Use this option to restore all the latest versions of files in the folder.
    E.g.: If a folder has 5 files, all the 5 files will be restored to its latest available version.
  • 2nd Most Recent - Use this option to restore files prior to the last backed up version.
    Ex: If a file in the folder has 3 different versions, this feature will restore only the version prior to the last backed up version, i.e., file version 2.
  • 3rd Most Recent - Use this option to restore the third last version of a file in a folder.
  • More - Provides an option to restore from fourth to tenth most recent version of files in a folder.

Important: For some accounts, folder-wise versioning may not be available.
