 ForeverFile continuously replicates all files from the primary to secondary storage. When primary files are deleted, by default, that operation is not propagated to the secondary. This means the ForeverFile file archive is holding a complete version history. Similarly, older versions are preserved for rename and move operations. ForeverFile continuously replicates all files from the primary to secondary storage.

 The Type column shows whether these earlier versions are available from the Backup or Primary provider. In some cases, additional copies will be on the primary provider - if versions are enabled or the trash has been used.

 +## Folder Recovery
 +
 +Complete folders can be restored through the Cloud File Manager. The folder is recovered with the file versions it contained at a particular point in time. Files are recovered from the [[trashfileversioning/​versioning|version history]] or [[cloudbackup|backup file store]].
 +
 +Open the parent folder, select the target folder and then use the menu option "​Recover Folder"​ to open the Recover dialog.
 +
 +{{ :​foreverfile:​recover-folder-dialog.png?​450 |}}
 +
 +Choose a destination folder for the recovered files, and a time at which recover the folder contents as of.
 +
 +A background task will be created to recover the files. Check the Tasks for the status. If a recovery fails, for example if the applicable version does not exist, an email will be sent.
 +
 +Note that folders are recovered based on their contents at the requested recovery time. Older files that were not in that folder at that time will not be recovered.
