I need some advice on a problem. I have a user that has 3 Calendars on his account and they are nested:

Calendar -> Old_Calendar
Calendar -> Old_Calendar1

Basically, both "Old_Calendar" folders are nested in "Calendar". What he wants to do is get all the events out of the 2 nested ones and put them in the main "Calendar" folder and then delete the 2 old ones. Not an easy task in Outlook.

So, I was going to do this from command line for him. I see all the events are stored in "#msgs" in each Old_Calendar folder. Is moving all those files from #msgs of one calendar folder to the #msgs folder of another calendar folder enough? There are over 50,000 items in there that need to be moved. What is the best way for dealing with this?

That's tricky, because simply moving around files in the store screws up all indexes and so forth. As a general rule, you should not mess with the store directly, only 'through' Kerio.

Why not connect to the Kerio account with Outlook (with KOC), set the calendar into the 'list view mode' so all events are in a single long list and then drag them into the correct calendar?

I wouldn't do all 50.000 in one move, but perhaps in batches of, say, a few thousand? Will take you an hour maybe, but at least your avoiding all risk of screwing up the store.

Of course, make sure you have a decent backup before you start messing around Smile

Actually, this is an easy task in Outlook. Select the calendar and switch the view to All appointments (in the menu View). Then select all appointments in the list and copy/move them to new folder.

Do not edit/move/delete any file in the message store. This is bad idea.

You should be able to log into the users account in the full-featured Web interface and fix it from there if the problem is being caused on the server and not with Outlook. You can quite easily right click on one of the sub-folders and do a Move or Copy all from the menu and choose to move the items from the sub-folder to the main Calendar folder. If you don't see all of the sub-foldering in the Web interface then likely the problem isn't being caused with the server.

Do I not need to know the users password to do this? It is encrypted in his conf file and I don't want to ask him for it.

Yea, to log into the web interface you will need his username and password. I don't know of a way to get it without simply asking your user for it. If you use the Outlook method posted above you will need access to his computer I presume.

Or you ask the user to grant you access to the folders, and when you are completed he can remove the rights.
