Hello - looking for clarification on how these 2 features in subject line work off each other
Scenario: I have a Win7 Pro desktop operating in a 2003 server domain based network, and accessing files off the server network shared folder for user documents. Shadow Copy is enabled on the server drive where shared folder exists.
A user edits a Word document stored on the network drive- saves on network drive and then closes document. To retrieve a "previous version" of the just modified document, the user should be able to open the network-drive folder - locate document - right click - select previous version and should have a copy to select from when the last "shadow copy" routine ran on the server. That's how it should work (as I understand)
A problem I'm having is that is not working. A previous version is not shown to restore from. Does the Win7 w/s have to have "system restore" running at their w/s in order for network-drive located documents to have previous versions to pick from? I'm thinking "no" that that would be for local document storage on the workstation..Correct me if I'm wrong.
I've read about issues with NetApp applicances having this bug, but this is a vanilla W2k3 server using local drives for storage. Also read an article about deleting a reg key "disable downleveltimewarp". That key was not present on this server.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm running out of ideas on what to look for next on this server - thank you.
