Restoring folders

Restoring data > Restoring folders

Recovery Manager for Exchange provides the following methods for restoring mailbox folders and public folders:

  • Method 1: Finding and restoring folders. Allows you to search multiple source storages for specific mailbox and public folders by a multitude of search criteria. You can then select and restore folders from a list of search results.
  • Method 2: Restoring a folder while browsing a source storage. Offers a quick way to restore a folder while browsing a source storage in the Recovery Manager Console.
  • Method 3: Exporting all messages from particular folders. Exports all messages from the mailbox or public folders you select to individual new .eml, msg, or .txt files. When exporting messages to individual files, you can re-create the source storage folder structure in the target restore location: the messages being exported will be placed in the appropriately named target subfolders to reflect the location of the exported messages in the source storage.
  • Method 4: Restoring public folders using the Task Pad View. Allows you to restore selected public folders or the entire public folder hierarchy of an Exchange organization or Exchange Online (Office 365).

You can restore mailbox and public folders with or without their permissions. For more information, see the description for the Preferences tab in Configuring Recovery Manager for Exchange.

The following subsections provide instructions on how to use each of these methods.
