restore from vss

Hello there,

On my hp aio600 storage server volume shadow copy is running.
When i look at previous versions via a client i can only see the snapshots from 7:00 and 12:00. and nothing from the previous days. The service has been running for a week or so now. (Default config) I know there are 64 snapshots made before the first is again overwritten but where can i see that to say restore a file from last week.
Thanks for the help

how much space have you set aside for previous versions? - if the VSS runs out of room it will overwrite older versions.

Of course thanks.. logical really now i think about it.
I have defaut settings with use limit 1024 Mb
I have vss running on 3 shared volumes on aio600 with a total of about 150 Gb of data.
If I set it at no limit where can i see how big each snapshot is? then i could then set a realistic size limit.
