I'm trying to restore or download an old version of an Axure Rapid Prototyping file that I saved over in Google Drive. I looked up Google's documentation on the topic, which says:

Restore recent versions

You can download and keep old copies of PDF files, images, and other files stored in Google Drive.

Go to drive.google.com.
Click on a file.
At the top right, click More three dots menu.
Click Manage versions.
Click More three dots menu.
Click Download to save a copy to your computer.

However, on this file, I am not seeing a "manage versions" option under the three dots menu.

As you can see from my answer here, you have to go to the individual file and select the version to download. This will not work for zipped/compressed files.

I'm attaching the screenshot here for reference enter image description here

  • The screenshot in my question is from an individual file. It is the .rp file extension saved by the application, Axure. It is not a compressed / zipped file. Google Drive doesn't seem to recognize it as a single file though.

  • Try checking the versions of your .rp file

  • I am not able to get to the versions of the .rp file. That is what my question is about!

    Can you right click on the .rp file in your Google drive and check if there is a revisions option?

  • Ah, I see now. That menu option is only available from a list view but not on the detail page of the file itself.

Apparently in Google Drive, one can get to the "manage versions" menu from this file in a list but not from the detail view of the file itself.
