It appears shadow copies are turned on for drive g on this server.  It appears I can "revert" for the entire drive but I do not see options for shadow copies on each of the folder in the drive. I just want to restore 1 document from one folder.  If I click the revert button will it ask me where it should be restored to? So I could possibly save it to another folder and not over write all files?

right click on the folder and choose Properties (last option), then on the tab Previous versions. Now you can restore or copy your shadow copied files

In 2003, I don't think you could do this from the server easily.  Try restoring the file by connecting to the share from a workstation.
