The HNAS file server saves old versions of files so that any user can retrieve them.

The default snapshot time schedule looks like this: (2017-06-21)

  • Every 15 minutes for an hour
  • Every hour for a day
  • Every day for a week
  • Every month for two months

In Windows open Properties of a file or folder and then in the Previous versions tab pick an appropriate version.

In macOS mount with an extra /~snapshot in the path to access the snapshots folders. Use your own university account instead of the example below.

Then enter the appropriate folder to search for the lost version.
