Old Versions View

The Old Versions View consists of two areas:


The section following below describes the Old Versions Table.

For general information about deleting old file version snapshots see  Deleting Old File Versions .

For particular information regarding deleting old file version snapshots manually see  Manual Deletion .


The  Old Versions Table

This table shows the old file version snapshots stored for a file selected within the  Navigator View . If no file is selected within the  Navigator View  (but a directory instead, for instance) this table is empty.

If this table is not empty the old file version snapshots stored for the file selected within the  Navigator View  are grouped within  age groups . This makes it easier to delete a distinct fraction of old file version snapshots manually, for instance,  ’delete all old file version snapshots that are older than one month’ .

Live  grouping

The grouping of old file version snapshots is  live . For instance, if an old file version snapshot, that resides within the ‘ Older than a week’  age group, becomes also older than a month while the appropriate file is selected within the  Navigator View , this old file version snapshot will be moved from the ‘ Older than a week’  age group to the ‘ Older than a week’  age group automatically.

Opening old file versions

One or more old file versions can be opened in various ways:

Important note : There’re very few cases where a target application may have problems to open an old file version. For instance, opening an old file version of a Swift source code file in Xcode works smoothly, whereas trying to open an old file version of a storyboard file confuses Xcode a bit.

Reverting a current file version to a certain old file version

A current file versions can be reverted to an old file version by choosing the appropriate context or main menu item:
