    Previous Versions Feature in Vista

    I am unable to use the new Windows Vista feature that lets you return to a
    previous version of a document. If I right click on a file, and go into
    Properties, I don't get the Previous Versions tag. Is there a way to activate
    this feature?

    Only Windows Vista Business and Ultimate SKUs have previous versions support
    built in.

    There are 3rd party applications which allow you to access shadow copies for
    example ShadowExplorer http://www.shadowexplorer.com/

    Hi MissEmmaH,

    If you have a Ultimate, Business, or Enterprise edition of Windows Vista, then this will show you how to get Previous Versions to work.
