Previous version file says "Cannot find the file specified"
I needed to restore a previous version of a file so I went to the .VPK file and checked it for previous versions. There was a previous version present that would work for me, except when I clicked on it, it did not give me the option to "restore" the file, however it did give me the option to copy the file so I copied it to another directory.
So, after going through this process, I assume that the file I copied and pasted to another folder was the previous version file in its entirety, but this previous version file confuses me.
Could someone explain what copying a previous version of a file does? It doesn't seem to actually "copy" the file because the file I "copied" was incomplete and not at all a copied version of the file I needed. It is a VPK by the same name, but it does not contain anything. When I try to extract its contents, it says the files inside cannot be found.
Seeing that the VPK I copied wasn't a copy, I went back to the VPK file to see what else I could do with the previous file versions the next day but the previous version I needed was no longer there, though I still have the seemingly faulty copy.
What can I do to get these files back with what I have now?
