Dear Experts,

I did reconstruct mailboxes of all users, using the script in  
README.HOWTO-recover-mailboxes.db.  Following is the extract of the  
script (for reconstruct)

find /var/spool/imap/user -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 | \
while read i; do
     i=$(basename $i)
     /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/reconstruct -rf user.${i}
     /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/quota -f user.${i}

One of the users mailbox has one more level of sub folder like

Right now, folders of level are seen, but folders at including ABC are not seen.

Should I run,
/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/reconstruct -rf now? That is when  
Cyrus-imapd is already running?  Or I should stop the service and run  
reconstruct?  Please advise.
