    Nice Find!

    Looking at the product's home page here one can see it uses shadow copies. So it is implementing a very similar function to the "Previous Versions" tool in built into Win 7.

    Nonetheless, being able to mount and browse the shadow copy is a significant improvement rather than working a single specific file as required by the Previous Versions app.

    That does sound very nice since I've always thought it can sometimes be very difficult to find/remember what folder a deleted file may have been in if wanting to locate a previous version. Seems to work well, maybe a step above ShadowExplorer.

    Just be aware that the version is 0.0.5 which to me would indicate a very early release. From the comments at the author's site it has not been updated in a long time. From the author's comments he is not working on it now.

    That's true Joe, but it is a bit of a safe process to try out, and it surely is handier than having to restore all to a point when often all one needs is a single file.

    It may be handier but not necessarily safer. I would be very, very careful about using any product with a version 0.0.5.
