IMHO, it's a totally useless feature, if you can call it a feature.

Hello Kitji,

I have not made a Windows 7 version of this yet, but it's the same as in the Vista tutorial below. Be sure to check the items in the red warning box to make sure that you have them set properly for Previous Versions to work properly.

Previous Versions - Shadow Copy - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Kitji,

ShadowExplorer is a good free alternative to Previous Versions.

I'm on x86 but this link indicates yes.
