Btrfs Windows/SMB file versioning

Hey, im looking for a way to enable the windows "previous versions" feature on Unraid. Since Unraid supports btrfs and btrfs seems to support the "previous versions" feature, shouldnt it be possible to enable it somehow?

Don't forget that Unraid uses independent filesystem for each device, so if you want to do that to a share that spans multiple disks you have to snapshot all disks, not the share.

Hey @johnnie.black, thanks for your fast reply. As far as i can tell this does only create a snapshot at a specific time. I'm looking for a solution that creats a snapshot as soon as a file gets updated. Isn't that possible?

Not as far as I known, this works with SAMBA and zfs or btrfs but you need to have regular snapshots scheduled, you can then revert any file to any of those.
