is it possible to do a bulk version change?

I had a computer with sharefile sync that replaced a bunch of files with 0 byte files. Is there any way to do a mass/bulk replacement of files with the previous version? I can generate a list of the files by searching my entire tree for files with 0 bytes, so maybe a script of some sort could do it. 

It does raise the question of whether this could be done in the case of a cryptolocker scenario where you have to go to previous version on a large number of files

Hi Chris,

We absolutely have processes and procedures in place for cryptolocker scenarios where we can expire all new items created by specific user(s). Please feel free to open a support case to discuss this with our team and see if your situation qualifies. Alternatively, you can use our API to achieve similar results.

Best regards,

Kevin Glenn
