  • Block "restore previous version" of ShadowCopy folders with GPO or RegKey

    Hello there

    Does anyone know if there is a chance to remove the "restore" button from the "Previous Version" window only for folders?
    If a user will restore a single file then it's ok, but of course if it has the chance to restore the entire departmental folder he/she can really create a big damage.
    Is the Shadow Copy meant only for "MyDocuments" and not for a departmental share?
    Thanks in advance

    That would be cool, I've always feared that exact scenario but theres no way to do it.

    I think if the folder is read only then they can't restore it. Have your ACE apply to subfolders and files only.

      Shadow Copy is meant to be used by users once they've had sufficient training both in how to use it, and how to use caution when using it.
