Today is 01/21/13.  When I go to look at previous versions the newest ones available are from 11/30/12.  This is the case for every file/folder even those that have been updated since 11/30/12.

How can I check that shadow copying is on?
How can I once again get more current previous versions?

Hi,

You need to edit the max Shadow copy registry key in order to show the correct version of shadow copy.

Here you go http://www.networksteve.com/forum/topic.php/Previous_versions_displays_only_the_64_OLDEST_previous_versions/?TopicId=14749&Posts=2

How can I check that shadow copying is on?
1. Goto the domain console by right click "Computer" -> "Manage"
2. Goto the Task Scheduler sestion, do you see any tasks related to "ShadowCopyVolume"? Post back the error logs if there is any.

How can I once again get more current previous versions?
NO. As no previous version has been created since 30 Nov 2012, you can get none. If the problem has been fixed, you will start having previous version afterwards.
