distinct circumstances call for distinct restoration procedures, which can vary depending on the individuals involved, the breadth and extent of the restore, and the goal. These are a few instances of these situations:
- the unintentional destruction of emails due to human mistake, such as emptying the Trash can folder
- a file system issue that might result in reading and writing failures and render some portions of an account unavailable
- administrative mistakes, including those that occur during the undelete procedure
- Due to the use of false or stolen credentials, an account has been hacked.
- The enforcement authorities require access to an account’s whole history since they are looking into it.
In any of these scenarios, the data in a mailbox can be restored. Restore solutions fall into two categories based on the destination of the recovered data: recovery on the same server—or same infrastructure—and recovery on a different infrastructure.
reinstall the same infrastructure
These methods are designed to be applied when only a portion of an account on the same server as the origin server has to be restored. Single Item Restore, Restore on New Account, Time-range Undelete, and Restore Account all come under this category.
various infrastructure restoration
Use of the External restoration approach is a possibility when the restoration procedure is not practicable or doable on the same infrastructure as the original.
It is significant to note that objects in Carbonio Backup are available up until the point at which they are marked as deleted and removed from a mailbox as part of a Backup Purge process.
Lastly, all restoration techniques:
- may only be carried out using the CLI, with the exception of Restore Account
- retrieve things at a specific time (or interval), which means that they are also recovered in their status at that time.
- retrieving a file from a different folder than the original
- At the start and completion of the restore operation, you should always send the administrator and the procedure’s initiator an email.
A Single Item Restore is being run.

A Time-range Undelete is being executed

Before You Begin
- Disable the RealTime Scanner if Carbonio Backup has already been initialised on the destination server to optimise memory utilisation and I/O performance.
- Advanced users can modify or deactivate the RedoLog for the duration of the import to decrease I/O overhead and the amount of disc space required for the migration.
- It is feasible to enable compression on your current main volume before beginning the import to consume less disc space overall. It is feasible to establish a new, uncompressed primary disc, set it to Current, and convert the previous one to Secondary if you do not want to utilise a compressed primary drive after migration. The powerstore component is required for this operation.
- Check out the section on multithreading to speed up the restore if you want to utilise the CLI.
