If the user accidentally deleted public folders, Kerio Connect Administrators can restore it. The process involves recovering all public folders, i.e. public emails, calendars, contacts, etc.
This article describes the step-by-step procedure on how to restore public folders in the Windows environment with the configuration data stored in the default location
C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer and the backup stored locally.
- Stop the Kerio Connect.
- Open the Command Prompt (as Administrator) by going to Start > Run > type
cmd> hit Enter.
- Navigate to the Kerio Connect installation directory:
- Run the following
kmsrecovercommand by specifying Public mask and particular Custom backup to restore from:
kmsrecover.exe -m public store\backup\C20201013T125547Z.zip
- Type yes to continue. The
kmsrecovercommand detects the path to the store automatically in the configuration file of Kerio Connect and recovers the public folders.
- Start the Kerio Connect.
If needed, you can specify optional parameters:
- for the domain
- for additional backup before the recovery starts
Important: the backup can be stored on the external disc, e.g.
E:\backup. If there is a space in the directory name, enclose it within quotes, e.g.,
kmsrecover "E:\backup 2".
