SBS 2008 - shared folder on server is automatically restoring to previous versions periodically


  • A very strange problem:  

    We have a shared folder on the server that every workstation has access to.   Strangely after they edit folders or add files, they come back the next day (or in a few days) to find that the folder is back to the way it was before they added or deleted files.  

    Is this some sort of syncing issue?  Or perhaps 3rd party software issue?

    If anyone has experienced this before I'd greatly appreciate your advice.

  • Hello,

    Some quick questions for you.

    Have you found anything of interest in the Eventlogs ?

    What backup software are you using and does it use a VSS writer?

    Is it reverting at 7am and 12 midday (From your observations).

    Is this everyday or random ?
