I had an issues just a bit ago where I couldn’t access “Previous Versions” even tho I knew Windows was creating them. But it just wouldn’t let me access them via the Properties dialog. This wasn’t really that much of an issues since I never really used it that much. However the point is it wasn’t there for when I would need it.
This is what I was seeing:
After googling a little bit I found a couple of refrences and starting points to look into. First one told me I needed to have the Server service running. I also needed to have TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service also running. In my case both were running so that wasn’t my problem. (Refrence)
Soon after found myself on one of Microsoft’s KB pages also trying to solve this issues. It had you go to the network adapter to turn on File and Printer Shareing. But again my problem wasn’t here as it was already on. (Refrence)
Felt it was time to refine my search term since I was just using the message itself. This problem was happening after I used Tuneup Utillites to alter a few settings. It was such a little thing too, Administrative Shares must be turned on. The one setting thats required for Previous Versions I had off. (ref: Refrence)
I can report that Previous Versions is now working. :)
