Restore folder without overwriting files

Alex Vicol shared this idea 15 months ago
Under Consideration

Would be nice to be able to restore a folder w/o deleting the destination folder before restoring it and skip existing files.

This way, when a user deletes half of his emails we ca restore missing emails.Or any case were missing files have to be restored.

This would be a great idea, mainly because of the issue this gives with emails. Emails should never be deleted when restoring a backup :)

And it would work not just for emails but for cases were you would need to keep files that don't exist when the backup was made.

This should really be prioritized and implemented. IMO it's a very big/bad omission. We should be able to select if we need for the restore to delete existing files prior (ex: for cases of security breaches) or not (ex: for email account restores). We were in the process of migrating over from R1Soft but this problem is a big one.
