Each time you edit a document and upload this document to Box there is a new version of this document. Box shows the number of saved document versions (v) located to the right of the document name.
Note: Box has a version history limit of 123 versions. Once you pass that limit, the oldest versions will be removed. Box will also no longer update the version number; only the version date will change.
In Box, a version can be opened, made as current, or removed from the version history list.
[v4 is located at the end of the file name indicating there are 4 versions of this specific file]
To open a previous version of a file:
- Click the version number to the right of the file name to open the Version History area.
- Scroll to locate the version (date/time) and choose “Download”.
