  • I strongly suspect that these versions are getting overwritten or deleted by SP once it reaches the version limit that you have set.

  • Check if you can find the deleted version in the Recycle bin and  restore it from there.

  • Ok Let me rephrase it.

    you have version history enabled on the list with max of say 2 versions to retain.

    when 3 or 4th version comes in you will loose the version1 and version 2 and so on when new one piles up.

    So the question here is , when version 3 or 4 is in , v1 is gone from the system. Can i explicitly get tat deleted version ???

    hope its clear now

  • Try restoring the list from the backup.

    if you have deleted all of the list version history, then restoring from the backup would be the best way.

  • Do you have access to Visual studio, if so then create a project to print the no of versions from the items. if you have more than 2 then, I think you can retrive the data.

    if you dont have access to Visual studio, then it would be better to raise a support ticket with microsoft it it is very urgent

  • No one has a version limit set. That is not default settings. I have a 75 percent feeling that this is just SP shitting out on users.

    Say this is a user error: Even if you were to try to restore the version from the recycle bin, retention period is 30 days max. So you better hope the user catches it within that time-frame, because if not you're basically sol.
