History of file changes

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

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

If you have a Yandex.Disk Pro subscription, you can access the history of changes for the last 90 days. Without a Yandex.Disk Pro subscription, you can only view the history of changes for the last 14 days.

  2. Versions of other people's public files
  3. Versions of files in shared folders

Viewing the history of file changes

To open the history of file changes:

  1. Select a file.
  2. Click  → History of changes in the upper panel or in the context menu.

The line of each version shows the date and time when the file was modified. If you change the file multiple times, these consequent file versions will be grouped together.

To see what changes were made in one of the older versions of a file, open it. If after that you want to replace the current version with the older one, click Restore and select Replace current one. If you need both the old and current versions, click Restore and select Save as copy.

Versions of other people's public files

You can't view the history of changes for other people's public files. If you save someone else's public file on your Disk, the history of changes starts from that moment.

Versions of files in shared folders

Shared folder history shows changes made by all folder members. The history of changes may be available for 14 or 90 days, depending on whether the owner of the shared folder has a Yandex.Disk Pro subscription.
