Revert to old file

Revert to old file

New member | Level 2

I have a folder I share between two computers and it corrupted. I saw a guide on the website on how to revert to a previous version but the button is not there and all I can find is this paid thing for reverting. All the guides I saw said there should be a version history button on free accounts that you can go back up to just 30 days but it cannot be found anywhere.

Re: Revert to old file


Hi @Spookykid, thanks for joining the Community!


The option for recovering older versions of files is only available for files, and not entire folders.


You can view your folder history using the steps here, and also from the events page.

Hope this helps!
