HELP restore outlook pst file
« on: February 11, 2012, 07:09:26 AM »
Hi to all.
I have created a backup of my .pst files directory using the incremental method.
The name of the backup file is Outlook_inc_files|Date1|.cbu, where Date1 is a Macro that writes the date (day, month, year).

On 09 Feb 2012 I ran for the first time the backup and it switched, as expected to full backup.
The name of the file created is Outlook_inc_files_09_02_2012.cbu
The log file, that I have, said that everything was ok.
Today 11 Feb 2012 I ran again the backup and it created an incremental file Outlook_inc_files_11_02_2012.cbu  and the log said everything was ok.

Now the problem

I need to restore the outlook.pst file because I have deleted some email.
So here is what I have done:
I clicked on Outlook_inc_files_11_02_2012.cbu
The Comodo backup opened, I chose the destination folder, tempemail, and clicked restore.
The problem is that in the destination folder I do not have the right backup restored.
It is very small.

The 9 Feb 2012 the outlook.pst files was 274.084 KB
After the restore the outlook.pst file size is only 20.873 KB

What am I doing wrong?
How can I get a correct restored pst file?

If I restore the Outlook_inc_files_09_02_2012.cbu I get 274.084 KB that is the situation at the date of 9.02.
But if I restore the Outlook_inc_files_11_02_2012.cbu I do not get the union of them but only a small pst file that can not be opened with Outlook.

Any idea?

Hi

We have a fix for this issue.
Please try one of this exes, place it in your installation folder and run it instead of CBU.exe

GUI.exe (32 bit OS)

Dear Emanuel,
thanks for your answer and for your help.
I ran the GUI.exe 64 bit on the Outlook_inc_files_11_02_2012.cbu and it restored a copy that was bigger than the other, 274.057 KB against 20.873kb, but the pst file did not open.
So I had to pass it trough the scanpst utility and then it opened, but there were only a few emails left. I can say that there were only sent email of 11.02.2012.
I was happy to see that the one I found were those I was looking for.

Please tell me if it is possibile to incrementally backup pst files or if I have to use another way?

Yes, it is possible. You don't have to use another way. The way you described above is ok.
Just use the new GUI.exe I posted until the new release with the fix will be out.

Thanks
