I'm planning on moving an installation to a new machine next week. I have read that recovering a backup from the old machine to the new one is the best way to do this.

Do I need to have a full, and only a full, backup in the backup directory? I have a recent full backup and I'm hoping to minimize downtime, so I'd like to do just stop accepting emails, do a (comparatively) quick differential, swap the drives, then recover from the backup(s).

Is kmsrecover smart enough so if I do a full recover from the backup folder it will look at the full and differential in that folder for the latest data for everything? Or do I need to shut it down for 12 hours to run a full backup with no changes happening so make sure nothing is lost?

Hi, how did this work out for you? Did you find the recovery process was reliable or did you experience any missing emails? I ran a test migration and found that after reindexing all of my user's mailboxes, there were up to several hundred emails missing form some accounts.

I'd like to try and confirm if this is unusual or not.
