Windows 7: Automatically Reverting to previous versions

Automatically Reverting to previous versions


I just got a new computer at work here no more than 2 1/2 weeks ago. I was working yesterday on some local files, in a particular folder and when i came in today, all my changes were gone. I opened up the folder properties and checked the previous version it automatically creates overnight and all of the changes i had saved yesterday are in the previous version but not in the real time folder, WTF. All the drivers are installed, windows is fully updated, no third party backup software on it.

We've had similar problems around the office since we upgraded and their position is that its user related. I double as a 'Systems Administrator' around the office so you can direct your suggestions to me.

Problem with previous versions: "No previous versions available"
I (stupidly and accidentally) deleted all files in my "Downloads" folder. As in, hard deleted them - not to the recycle bin. I right-clicked the folder and picked "Properties", "Previous versions". Lo and behold, there were several previous versions. I opened the one from today, browsed through...
