i'd like to ask for advice on how to restore a backup of single mailbox
without disturbing the other mailboxes.
Let's say user albert deleted an important folder with many (100+,
hierarchy) subfolders accidentally.
A complete system backup from yesterday evening is available,
but i don't want to restore the whole mail-system to the state of yesterday
because that would mean other users would loose anything that has
happened since then (sent, received etc).
Following some info i found,
i created a new mailbox folder for the user in the mailsystem
restored the files from the backup system in there,
and ran reconstruct -r albert/myrestore
while the mails directly inside the folder are now visible correctly,
the subfolders are not visible,
any idea how to solve this ?
please advise =)
