Need to restore a duplicate version of a file

Need to restore a duplicate version of a file

I didn't realize I have uploaded a couple of files that had the same name, and Dropbox overwrites the 1st one with the 2nd one - BUT I need both versions - which I can see when clicking on "Versions" - How can I rename a version that isn't showing, within Dropbox

You need to trick the system

 

Create a copy of the file you have now and give it a new name (e.g. rename it from Document to Document Copy) and then restore the previous version back which will overwrite 'Document'. 

 

You will then have both versions (Document and Document Copy).
