Using the Previous Versions command in Windows to restore deleted files.

File Recovery in Windows:
The CAE uses a Windows utility called "Previous Versions" which is used for file recovery in case of accidental loss or deletion. To restore from these stored files, follow these directions:

  1. Select the folder where the file used to be. Right-click and select "Properties."

  2. recovery1.png 

    2. Click on the tab labeled "Previous Versions."

    3. Option 1: Here, click on the date you want to recover from, and click on "Open."

    Then, you can find the specific file you want to restore, right click on it, and click "Undo Delete."

Option 2: Restore all files from a specific date. Click on the date you want to restore and click "Restore." Another window will pop up asking for confirmation that you want to restore the previous version.
