Deleted folders should be restorable from Trash

When a user accidentally deletes a folder (or a folder structure), the deleted folder item should be restorable from Trash by the user.

A restored folder (or folder structure) should of course contain all the mail items.

Currently, the restore process for this scenario consumes an inappropriately large amount of time from a skilled Domino administrator.

    You have my vote because this would make the majority of backup restores obsolete. Shouldn't be too hard to implement, because the refences of contained documents are stored in a folder's properties.

    This i a big issue with our company to. You have our vote. We see all kind of simular issues with people who are dragging and dropping with folders an they sometimes just seem to disappear. To get the structure back we have to do all kind of restore requests and drag and drop folders. It is very time consuming work, especially with large mail databases or nested folders.

    If it is not possible to restore the folders than please do something with the tags. Save the tags in the document itself, we can make views than. Let's say, save a tag called 'Last Know Folder' or someting like that

    Yes, this is an issue which is not easy to communicate to a customer. It happens quite often and the customers never understand why a restore is not that simple.

    he recovery of folders deleted by Users is a Nightmare indeed and a common reuqest from Users.

    A Soft Deletion or an option to roll back Mailfiles when using Transaction Logging would be highly apreciated.

    You have my vote as well. It's an pretty usefull idea and we lose a huge amount of time restoring everything, piece by piece.

    Yes I agree 100%! this is important for many customer environments.
    Not that I understand why people are deleting folders all the time and afterwards figure out this was wrong.. LOL

    This is the number one reason for all restores! This would help end-users, reduce helpdesk calls and sometimes complicated restore procedures ..


    Having a undo journal for folder move/rename would be also very useful  ;-)
    That's the second reason for a restore and even harder to resolve!

    For the folder restore, we came up with an idea to make restores easier:

     

    http://blog.nashcom.de/nashcomblog.nsf/dx/restoring-deleted-folders-in-a-notes-database.htm

     

    I added it to my backup application and described a straightforward way with out of the box tools.

    When Domino Mail is used as a SaaS cloud product, this self-service data recovery feature is mandatory.

    Otherwise the TCO may be too unpredictable.
