Running Kerio 6.4.1 on a Windows 2003 configured with Raid 5. Two drives went offline. I was able to force them back online via Perc Bios.

I tried to zip the mail store but for whatever reason, couldn't copy it off the server. Error stated path was too deep and then aborted. So I spent another 3 hours performing a normal copy of the entire mail store onto a removable drive. I also copied the license file, kerio and user config files, and the ssl key folder.

In the mean time, I downloaded and installed the latest version of Kerio onto another desktop.

What is the best way to move my backup to the desktop incase things go south even further?

- copy store from removable drive to local drive of desktop
- copy two .cfg files to Kerio folder (modify kerio config to point to new path of mail store)
- copy ssl key folder to Kerio folder
- copy license file to Kerio folder (not even sure if this is needed since the eval is fully functional for 30 days?)

Will I have permission issues with the mail store based on how I copied it? Will the .cfg files return the backup server to what I have now, including all server settings and users? Are there any other modifications to the .cfg I need to do other than placing the correct path to the new message store?

Once the primary mail server comes back online, do I repeat the above process?

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
