No matter how organized you are, you know the pain of accidentally deleting an important file or losing a great idea, just because you reworked it so many times. It’s frustrating. It can also cost you a lot more than just a few sleepless nights and a headache. Keeping a clear track of your file changes is just as important as delivering the final draft.

That is why we developed a new way to see an older version of your account and recover the files you thought were lost – with pCloud Rewind.

pCloud Rewind is like the time machine for your files in pCloud. You can use it to travel back up to 30 days in the past and recollect photos, videos, documents and shared content that was changed over time or moved to the Trash. Set a time and date, and explore all the changes made at that moment – with the option to restore or download any previous version with a click. With pCloud Rewind, you can recover:

  • Old versions of your files

You might be searching for documents from 20 days ago that were renamed or edited. What if you were editing a new photo, only to realize that you are not following your initial idea. Rewinding your account will show you a snapshot of all of the previous versions of your data. That way, it will be easier to recover files that were deleted by mistake, or overwritten way too many times.

  • Content that was shared with you before

Let’s say you had a folder that your university professor shared with you, but your access stopped at one point. When you Rewind to a period before the share was stopped, you can recover all of the lost shared files.

  • Files and folders that were moved to the Trash

With pCloud Rewind, you can recover all of the files you moved to the Trash for one reason or another, as long as they are still there. One thing you should note is that once you Rewind your pCloud account, you will also be able to see permanently deleted files as part of the changes. However, you won’t be able to restore them as they are forever removed from our servers. We only keep a record of the names and file types of permanently deleted content, in order to preserve your file structure for the date and time you are viewing your account for.

Rewinding your pCloud account is easy and only takes 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Open my.pCloud from your browser

Step 2: Open Rewind, choose a time and date (up to 30 days in the past) – and Rewind!

Bonus step: Restore files

When you Rewind your account, you will see a snapshot of how your account looked like at the specific time and date. From there, you are free to download or restore everything in pCloud (at the moment, only possible for Premium and Business users) . You just have to mark the content you want to recover and click Restore. After you do that, these files will be saved in a folder, named “Rewind” in the main directory of your file structure.

pCloud Rewind is a great way to go back in time and rediscover all of your great content. Easily track your creative workflow and develop great ideas with pCloud!
