Programmatic Extract all reports from a server

I have users on our PBI Server who have overwritten a PBIX and now need to recover the previous version. I Can't see anything obvious that supports this other than restoring the ReportServer DB and extracting the content from there.

 

So I am wondering if there's something I can rig up that would extract all the current reports every day and archive them. Enabling me to keep copies where the users haven't employed any version control.

 

I have Powershells that do this for RDL files, am just wondering if anyone has idea if these would work for the PBIX files? Or if anyone has alternative ideas/approaches.

 

many thanks

 

Steve

Many thanks Qiuyun.

 

I should have found that myself!

 

My googling was obviously inadequate...
