Hi there,

At the moment we are implementing a new DFS share for our users and found out he nice feature of previous version. This is greath but we don't want users to be able to use it, only administrators. Is there a way to limit this for users? Group Policy, Permissions or something else?

Thnx!

Nope, each user who has access to share's resources (with modify permissions) will have also access to previous versions and will be able to restore them if he/she has Previous Version client installed.
