Importing/restoring backup of newly deleted folder

Postby merlincorp » Sun Aug 15, 2004 8:59 am

I have just done something mighty STUPID! I have deleted a folder with 200+ messages by mistake! However my backup from about a week ago seems to have the relevant files listed.

How do I import/restore the backup for just this deleted folder without overwriting anything else? What are the file extensions for all required files?

HELP!!!!!

Cheers

Sorry to hear about that stupid mistake, but could happen to anyone. :?
In the backup directory look for the requested MBX-file.
1. Make backup
2. copy the MBX-file to a temp directory and rename to test.mbx
3. close Poco
4. copy test.mbx into the Mail directory
5. open Poco
6. create the new folder
7. move messages from test mailbox to the desired location
8. delete test mailbox and make backup

I hope this helps! :wink:
