Public Folder Restore Wizard

The Public Folder Restore Wizard helps you restore selected public folders or restore the entire public folder hierarchy of an Exchange organization from registered source storages to a registered target storage. You also have the option to restore each selected public folder to an individual Personal Folders (.pst) file.

Source and target storages for a restore operation can be selected from those registered with Recovery Manager for Exchange. You can also register new source and target storages while using this wizard.

To start the Public Folder Restore Wizard

  • From the main menu, select Restore | Public Folders.

The wizard includes the following pages:

Add Public Folders to Restore

On the Add Public Folders to Restore page, the wizard prompts you to set up a list of the public folders you want to restore from registered source storages.
