Previous Versions Tab on Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am doing some testing on Windows 8.1, we're running SC DPM 2012 SP1 v4.1.3417.0

    I have done successful backups to the DPM server, but unlike Windows 7 I do not have a previous versions tab when looking at the properties of files / folders which have been backed up.

    The VSS service is present and set to manual (not running), dotnet framework 3.5 is installed.  I can't think of any other pre-req's that could be missing.  What do I need to do to make the previous versions tab available on Windows 8.1?  I think the local VSS backups are just as important a part of the protection provided by DPM as the backups sync'd to the server.  Especially as I have a mobile fleet of laptops who don't come back to the office to sync up every week.

    Cheers,

    James
