Hello all,

I have a problem. Without going into great detail, I was working on a project this morning and messed something up. I need to reload the project from a backup file to fix it. However, I'm working on a local file that references a networked central file. I know that, when not using worksharing, Revit automatically creates and numbers backup .rvt files to use in case one needs access to an earlier version of the project.

 However (as I found out today), the backup folder that is created when worksharing does not have .rvt files in it (only .rws and .dat files). How do I access an earlier version of my project when worksharing? Any help would be greatly appriciated. I'm using Revit 2010. Thanks so much!

To spare you from having to go into the help file...I copy / paste from it for you.

 

  1. Click Collaborate tab > Synchronize panel > Restore Backup.
  2. In the Browse for Folder dialog, navigate to the backup folder, and click Open.
  3. In the Project Backup Versions dialog, select the version to save.
  4. Click Save As, and save the file.
  5. When you save the project under the new name, Revit Architecture prompts you to open the extracted project. Click Yes or No.

    Revit Architecture considers this file as a local version of the central file. If you want the file to become the new central file, you must explicitly save it as such.

Brett, nice that you actually posted the instructions.

 

I try to push people into reading their Help but in this instance, it is hard to find.  Most people would look a backup, restore, file or something like that and they would not know rollback.

Hey HUB!

 

I agree 100%. More people need to peruse the help file prior to posting.

I rarely log on here any more because I am annoyed by the lack of effort on people part to find the answer...perhaps this is wrong on my behalf...but I love digging for hidden answers Smile

I find the help file one of the best resources for questions like this.

 

I only posted the steps because I had some spare time to kill Smile
