View history of file changes

Yandex.Disk has been keeping a history of file changes since May 1, 2018. For example, if you accidentally deleted important information from a file, you can go back to its previous version and restore the data.

Previous versions of a file don't take up space on your Yandex.Disk.

The history of changes is stored for 90 days from the latest change. For example, if you edited a document on April 17, the history will contain all its versions from January 17 to April 17. However, if you don't have additional paid space on Yandex.Disk, you will only have access to versions from the last 14 days. To access the full history, sign up for Yandex.Disk Pro.

To open the history of file changes:

  1. Select a file or folder. To do this, tap and hold the file or folder icon.
  2. In the upper panel, tap .
  3. Select History.

The history shows the date and time when the file was created and modified. All actions available for a file are grouped by days.

To view the previous version of a file, tap next to the date you're interested in and select Open. If you want to keep a copy of the old version or replace the older version with the current one, tap and select Restore.
