Restoring Deleted and Previous Versions of Files in Windows 10

You can restore deleted and older versions of files in File History either easily, once you have enabled files history. Note: If you have enabled files history then only you will be able to restore and backup files of previous versions. Follow the instructions below:

Step 1: By clicking the Restore personal files link in the File History Control Panel  or in any File Explorer window by clicking the History button in the ribbon.

Step 2: This will open File History at the current drive and folder point, though you can still navigate anywhere within your backup from there.

Step 3: The File History restore window has navigation (back, forward, and up) buttons in its top left and an address bar showing the current folder.

At the bottom of the window are back and forward (by date and time) buttons with a big green Restore button between them.

Step 4:  Once you have navigated to the folder you want to restore deleted or modified file(s) from, use the time buttons to find the correct day and time the backup copy was made.

Step 5: Select the file(s) or folder(s) you wish to restore, and hit the big green button.

That’s it its very easy to restore deleted and previous version of files in windows 10.

File History is excellent at picking up where it left off after a Windows reset or reinstall, though you will need to activate the feature again. If you really want to dig into the store location for File History, however all the files are stored in plain, easily accessible format, just as any other file on a hard disk would be. The only difference is that the date and time and the backup was made are appended to the end of the file name.
