PFDAVAdmin: Recover Deleted Public Folders

If you need to manage or recover Public Folders have a look at PFDAVAdmin from Microsoft, it allows you to recover deleted public folders (if they’re within the retention period) very easily:

Load the tool, select File, Connect and enter the details for the server and specify Public Folders and ok.

Right click on the folder above the one that’s missing, right click and select Show deleted subfolders (this only works for folders directly underneath it) and the deleted folders will show up  in red.

Right click and select Recover and it will recover the folder and append RECOVERED to the end of it, it will take a few minutes but when it’s completed you’ll get a prompt to say it’s completed. You can then rename the folder back and change the permissions so it doesn’t happen again.
