If you have WPV setup you should be able to right click on the folders or files and access the snapshots that way. You won't see any snaps listed if the files haven't changed though.

Yes, the only way I can access the snapshot is through the folder or file property under previous version tab.

Is there another way access those snapshot folders using .folder name?

Thanks,

I don't think there is, The backup API that is coming in AFS 3.0 will only let you see those snaps. I will see if anyone in Eng can respond though.

Try to see if we can access those snapshot from other way besides previous version tab.
