Hello

There are sites that have VDI configurations.

Files configured on the above site.

There is personal storage allocated for each user using Files.

Is there a way to recover only one piece of personal storage other than a full backup of Files using Data Protection?

Do you have self service restored enabled on the share?

Hello @Kimdaeho 

Self-service restore (SSR) lets you open and copy a previous version of a file. For SMB you can use SSR to restore files.

With Self-Service Restore (SSR), Files takes snapshots of the stored cluster data at the share level. SSR exposes these snapshots to the share or export and lets you view or restore a file from any of the previous snapshots without an administrator. The snapshots are read-only and point-in-time (snapshots taken at a certain time) copies.

Yes ssr is enabled.  I can't find a recovery method using ssr.  Is the previous version correct?

Yes. Just right click in windows on a folder or file → properties → previous versions.
