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?
