Delete / restore to a previous version of the file

Once you’ve made a change in one of your files in the briefcase, a new version of the file will be saved. Do you regret a change, only return to the previous again.

Click on the triangle in front of the file to see all the versions saved of the file.


Right-click the version you want to delete > Delete.


Do you want to restore the file to a specific version, right-click the version you want to use > Reset current version.



File Versioning

Once you’ve made a change in one of your files in the briefcase, a new version of the file will be saved. Do you regret the change, only return to the previous version again.


The briefcase supports versioning of files. Each time you download a file, make a change to it and save it again, the file version number increase. It is always the latest version that is displayed at the top of the list in the briefcase. In this way one can easily see when the last change was made and by whom. You can go open each different version and if you do not want to keep a version, simply remove it.

  • Admin: has full permissions to read, edit, add, delete, accept or decline invitations and administrate its content.
