Sometimes you will need to restore a previous version of a document. This recipe shows you how.
This recipe works for:
SharePoint 2010 Foundation
SharePoint 2010 Standard Edition
SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition
Office 365 (SharePoint Online)
You will need a SharePoint site with a document library with versioning enabled and a document with a previous version that you wish to restore. This recipe uses the Shared Documents library in a SharePoint 2010 Team Site for illustration.
Open the SharePoint Team Site with the document library containing the document that you want to restore.
Open the Shared Documents link in the Quick Launch menu.
Click on the checkbox to select the document that you want to restore.
In the Library Tools ribbon, select the Documents tab.
The Version History dialog is displayed.
