I set periodically snapshots of windows share. With FreeNAS to recover deleted files in Windows I used Properties->Previous versions of corresponding directory. Now with FreeNAS with same procedure I receive "There is no previous versions available". Snapshots are available.
Is it different in TrueNAS or I am missing something.

Hello,

Some days ago I made a test with new SMB shared dataset and it works.
With old dataset it doesn't work but I didn't understand what are the differences between the two dataset.

Best Regards,
Antonio
