The system provides many options for protecting—and optionally restoring—data. When you use the system, you can be sure that your data is safe and protected. For example, you can restore older revisions of files and folders, restore deleted files and folders, or use the Revision Rollback feature to restore all files within an entire folder to an earlier revision before a selected date.

The articles in this section will provide information on how you can protect, and optionally restore, your data.

When you edit a file, the system keeps track of each revision. Using the revisions feature in the web portal, you can view—and optionally restore—older revisions of files. This feature is useful when you make a mistake editing and saving a file, or if you want to see revisions made by other members of your Team Share.

To view and restore revisions:

  1. From the desktop client on your local machine, right-click a file, point to the sync menu, and select View Revisions.
  2. Alternatively, if you are working in the web portal, right-click a file and select Revisions.

    The Browse File Revisions page displays, listing all revisions of the file.
  3. In the Browse File Revisions page, click the title of the file to view the file in the Web Preview tool.
  4. Click the Download Revision link to download a previous revision. The file will download to your local machine.
  5. Click the Restore Revision link to overwrite the current file with the previous revision.
