"Show Versions" option does nothing

Running Windows 7 Pro X64.
When I right-click a file or folder and select the "Show Versions" option nothing happens.
I have to click "Restore previous versions" to get a list.
What is the point of the "Show Versions" option?

Just realised that the "Show Versions" is from Norton Ghost, not part of Windows 7, was leftover from Vista when I upgraded.
