Help me find my versions?

Unread post by MurphyLaw » Sat Oct 14, 2017 6:02 am

This is probably I silly question, but I am a newbie, so pls excuse me.

How do I access a previous version of a file that was backed-up from a Windows PC with a Cloud Station server? I do have versioning enabled for "User home" (32 versions) but all I see is just the latest version. If I look at the log I see msgs that seem to indicate the versioning is happening, eg I see

Code: Select all

System rotated the earliest version  of Cookies
but if I click on Cookies and thus I get into File Manager looking at

Code: Select all

/homes/admin/CloudStation/Backup/..../AppData/Local/Google/Chrome/User Data/Default
I don't have any way to see previous versions. The action button offers me many different & wonderful things but nothing about seeing previous versions.

I have a with DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 7.
