I have some questions related to a Windows based KMS install:

Is there a way to restore the mail store to a different logical drive than the one it was originally backed up from? For instance, if my current install has Kerio and the mail store on drive d:, can I restore the backups to drive e:?

I tried restoring my backups to a different drive when the original mail server crashed. Trying to save time, I didn't want to reconfigure the backup server. However, the restore utility wouldn't let me. I'm hoping I missed a command switch.

You can always manually restore the backup, not using the utility. simply unzip the archives to wherever you want. You would have to do some settings and edit the config files (because the store location changed), but in all it should be possible.

Thanks for the tip. I had suspected this but wanted confirmation.
So the process should be to restore (unzip) the last full backup along with the last differential backup...like restoring your differential server backups? Then modify the config file to point to the new location of the message store?

I would normally do after a crash or server migration:


  1. do a default install of KMS
  2. manually restore the backup, possibly placing the store on another location
  3. restore things like the SSL certificates, mailing lists and other items not automatically backed up by KMS itself, but presumably backed up by other means
  4. edit the cfg file to account for changes in pre-backup and post-restore scenario's such as changes of store location
