Backup and restore a certain file type, e.g. a *.pst RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    ist there a way to backup and restore only a certain file type like Outlook archives that are lying in different folders, for example in the users home-folders? Thanks for any reply.

  • Hi,

    It is only possible to "exclude" file types during backup, so in theory, you could build a large exclusion list and only allow .pst files.

  • Hi Mike,

     

    thanks for the quick reply. I saw that backup of a certain file typs isn't possible for servers in the GUI, although clients can be backuped in that manner. My hope is that this might be possible with a powershell script.

     

    Regards, Hans
