How Do I View and Restore a Revision

AXIS Cloud Sync captures versions (revisions) of each file stored in the system, allowing users to view or restore older versions if necessary.  The Revisions feature is one of many data protection features available to end users.

To learn about viewing and restoring deleted files and folders in the web portal, please reference the How to View and Restore Deleted Files and Folders Knowledge Base article.

To learn about the Rollback feature, which is available in the web portal, please reference the Rollback of Revisions Knowledge Base article.

To view and restore file versions (revisions):

  1. In the web portal, right-click a file and select Revisions.

    Alternatively, in AXIS Cloud Sync Folder, right-click a file, point to the AXIS CloudSync Tool Folder menu, and select Revisions.

    The Browse File Revisions page displays, listing all versions of the file.

  2. In the Browse File Revisions page, use the Download Revision and Restore Revision links to manage file versions.
      • Click the Download Revision link to download a previous version. The file will download, and you can review the previous version.
      • Alternatively, click the Restore Revision link to overwrite the current file with the previous version. The overwritten version will still be listed as a revision in the Browse File Revisions page.
