Previous versions of files on your Home Drive

 

This guide shows you how to get a hold of older versions of files or folders you may have deleted from NMBUs homearea. Notice that backups of the homeareas are done 3 times a day which may result in some instances where files have not been backed up yet to their most recent version.

1. The first step is to open your file Explorer from a NMBU computer and access your Home Drive.
