Keepit supports the backup and restore of versions of SharePoint items in a list and files in a library.

By default, we will not back up any versions

In the advanced settings of your backup configuration, you can enable the backup of versions, by selecting to back up the most recent 10, most recent 100, or all versions.  

Please keep in mind that backing up versions may result in slower backup performance.

Backed-up versions can be previewed in the Versions Viewer Previewer in the Versions history tab. 

How versions can be restored

You can recover your items and files in the following ways: 

  • By restoring all versions
  • By restoring only the most recent version
  • By restoring a specific previous version

All restore options offer the choice to either restore all backed-up versions or just the most recent version.

For restoring a specific previous version, use the Versions Viewer Previewer.
