Recovery of files and folders

The university's backup tool takes a screenshot twice per working day at 12:00 and 18:00.


  1. Log in to a computer at the university
  2. Right-click on the document or folder to be restored and select Properties.
  3. Click the Previous Versions tab
  4.  Select the date and time you want to reset to and press “Open”. (The recommendation is to press "Open" instead of "Restore" as you get the opportunity to review the file / folder before it is restored.)
  5. The folder is now displayed as it looked at the current time. If necessary, you can open files / folders and view the contents.
  6. Copy the file / folder to be restored from the snapshot to the original location. If you want to save the restored file / folder as a copy, you first need to rename the original file so that it is not overwritten. Alternatively, copy the file / folder to another location.
