Restore functionality: Domain and account

Post by martin » 2005-09-24 11:25

In 4.2, you can restore from a backup. You can chose between restoring
Settings, Domains and Messages. But you can not chose to restore a specific domain or acocunt and messages for that domain/ account. You must restore _all_ domains today.

It would be nice if a couple of different restore alternatives were shown. For example, "Server restore", "Domain restore", and "Account restore". If you chose "Domain restore", you should be able to select a specific domain you want to restore. If you select "Account restore", a list with all accounts in the backup should be shown so that you can select which you want to restore.

Next step is an "IMAP folder restore" and "Message restore" that allows you to browse a backup file and select which specific IMAP folder you want to restore for a specific user.

That function would make your integrated backup system unbeatable. Will the server be online while backuping ? if not wich experience do you have backuping certain number of GB and processor configuration ?

With that and with a delayed real delete (another interesting requested feature) an administrator would have all the tools necessary to answer all those daily minor issues with user's emails.

I would consider backups to be a number one overlooked utility.

I am asked to restore lost files on home computers daily and it could all be prevented if the users had a backup system.

So, any increase in the backup functionality for hMS would be very very welcome.
