Accesing old versions of files via CIFS

Question asked by mark.smithson on Oct 18, 2007
CIFS mounts for AVM stores shown previous versions of the store under the VERSIONS folder. Although you can browse the contents of these folders you cannot access the contents of the files. Any attempt to open or copy the file results in an access denied error.

Does this work and if so what am I doing wrong? If not is it a bug?

This would be quite useful to restore a file accidently deleted on a previous snapshot without having to revert everything to that snapshot.

I was able to achieve this by finding the node in the alfresco database and then copying the data from the relevant file in the conentstore folder on the filesystem.
