Shadow Copy - Cannot Find Deleted Files

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I just activated Shadow copy on our main shared drive and thought it was working fine.  I placed a test file on the drive, logged into the server and ran a manual shadow copy, went back to the shared folder and deleted the test file.  Right clicked the open area, properties, Restore Previous Version.  It gives me a link to the folder, bit instead of View button I get a Open button.  When I select open, it does not show the deleted file.  It does work on modified files.

Is this a by-product of having the shadow copy on a different drive?
