SharePoint restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to restore an excel file that was overwritten in a folder on sharepoint 2007.  Currently we only have a transaction log backup and no other.

    Is this the only I would be able to restore the file?

     

    Thanks

  • Hi Lewis,

     

    Did the document library where Excel file located enable version settings? If it has enabled version settings, you can click Version History from the dropdown menu of that Excel file and restore the version you want.

     

    Thanks.
