Unlocking Efficiency with ShareMaster: Effortless File Version Reset

Are you on the lookout for a straightforward method to reset file versions within your SharePoint document library? Look no further than ShareMaster, a robust tool designed to streamline version control and simplify the process of rolling back file versions.

ShareMaster grants you the ability to effortlessly reset file versions. This functionality is accessible in the free-tier version of ShareMaster, enabling you to handpick multiple files residing in a SharePoint document library and opt for the version to reset them to. It’s an incredibly user-friendly process that can save you both time and effort.

Crucial Note: While ShareMaster’s Version Reset feature is a potent tool for resetting file versions, it’s imperative to grasp its inner workings. Essentially, this feature captures a snapshot of the most recent version and duplicates it as version 1, subsequently advancing the version number. Consequently, the entire version history is obliterated, leaving only the latest file version and its associated metadata intact. The principal aim of this function is to reset the version number itself.

Should you require similar functionality while preserving both file and metadata versions, we encourage you to reach out to us via our website’s “Contact Us” page. Depending on the demand, we may be able to develop a tailored solution to cater to your specific needs.
