How do I restore a file from the history, or undelete the file?


Answer/Solution:

1) Open the view that contains the file.
2) In the bottom pane, click on the History tab.
3) Find the revision that you need.
4) If customer needs to check the file contents of the previous revision or compare it to the tip revision, right click on the revision needed and select Compare Properties. From there users can also Compare Contents.
5) Once user is sure this is the file needed, right click on the file revision and select either "Check Out" or "Check Out To". It is recommended to use "Check Out To" so that the user can put it in another folder and not over-write the existing working folder copy.

From there, if the user needs to check that file back in as the tip revision, move it into the working folder location over the previous tip revision. Or if the user needs to check it into another location in the project, that can be done here as well. Be aware that if checked in to another location, it will not retain it"s previous file history.
