Demo: Previous Versions of files in Windows Vista

By / Senior Program Manager, Windows Insider Program

Today, Esther is going to show off the Previous Versions. This feature is part of the Shadow Copy feature in Windows Vista. This is a really helpful feature that has saved me numerous times!   It essentially makes incremental back-ups of your work – so if you accidentally delete content, you can find it again and recover it with a single click.  Anyone who has modified a document and clicked “save” instead of “save as” will appreciate Previous Versions!

Let me know what you think of this and the other features we’ve discussed this week (Search and Live Icons) – we’d love your feedback!
