This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

We have few public folder archived with several nested folders inside each folders with lots of archived and non-archived items. We want to restore all archived items from all public folders and subfolders back into Exchange.

Is there any easy way to Bulk restore those public folders?

Many Thanks

Even though it is a bit dated I think this process is about the only way:

I don't know of any other utility.

There aren't any other utilities unfortunately, it really is a case of select all - restore from vault, next folder, select all - restore from vault

It's a shame no tool or utility was ever produced to do this...

Well i suppose you could use the Public Folder Exporter from Quadrotech
http://www.quadrotech-it.com/products/public-folder-exporter/

But in all honesty if its just a few folders, its probably cheaper and easier to do the select all/restore method

Well... Yeah. Our tool. Didn't want to flagrant pushing... But yep the PF exporter will do the trick.

Theres nothing wrong with suggesting the product, tony didn't know about it, I thought it exported to PST or somewhere other than the PF which is why i didn't bring it up.

And simply if you're worried about that, you can just say theres our product, but these other products can do it too etc, but since you're only game in town you're doing a disservice to yourself, and the op :)

 

so woo yay quadrotech can do it! looks like a nice product that really EV should be able to cater for, but thats the beauty of partners :)
