When a file has been uploaded and linked with "Files and images" on a Page and then in future is overwritten with a new version of the file, is there anyway to get the previous version of the file?

Hello @Tom Sharples ! As I understand, you need to fetch a previous version of an existing attachment in your instance.

You should be able to do so by checking the attachment in the attachments list. Here is how you can reach this list:


Please, keep in mind that previous versions of attachments can be deleted. If this is the case, you will not be able to restore that specific version.

If you need more information on how to manage attachments in Confluence, you can take a look here:

Thanks Diego, worked a treat and we've been able to get the file required.
