A customer somehow lost a sub-folder he made in his INBOX

His structure is like

So the folder G is gone and I can find him in the backup files.

I know I could just copy it back and re-index his mailbox.
But I guess using the kmsrecover is more nice the the structure.

I was thinking about the command below but I'm not sure

./kmsrecover -v -d -u username -f "INBOX/customers/G" /Volumes/backup/

Could someone confirm this?

Kind Regards

Hi Marc,

The KMSRecover command cannot recover just a sub folder. You would need to recover the root folder and then restore the sub folder manually. So you could restore the root folder to a different location with the command:

./kmsrecover -v -d -u username -f "INBOX" -s ~/Desktop/RestoredFolder /Volumes/backup/

Obviously you want to manually place the folder 'G' into the users mailbox with the server still stopped and re-index the mailbox when the server comes back online.

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Hi Vicky,
I tried the command te recover a subfolder and it seemed to work!
first on our test server and then for the customer.
So i did manage to recover only the subfolder for that user!
