    Zx Backup: External Restore - Does it delete existing account data?

    Question:

    I did a backup April 12 with the Migration tool, I am trying to move from 7.x to 8.x at another data center.
    The migration has been stalled.
    I was testing Zx Migration at the time.
    June 18 the server failed, iSCSI error.

    June 19 I got the server running again.
    June 19th new emails were sent and received.

    Aug 12 I had an idea that I could restore the April 12 backup data
    I added Zx suite
    I added Scanned the backup folder
    I can see the domains and email accounts in the backup.

    Can I restore an email account OVER the existing email accounts with exisiting emails?
    I would like to keep the old emails prior to April 12 and the emails from June 19 to Aug 12.
    Is Zx Backup: External Restore programmed to "ADD" old emails or "OVERWRITE" all existing data?


    Thanks

    Hello newmember!

    All ZeXtras Backup's Restore Modes are made to only Add items, and no Restore Mode will ever delete any data from your server. This includes running an External Restore on the server the exported data belongs to (which - I must warn you - is not an officially endorsed restore method).

    Also, please be aware that in this specific case you won't be able to import your data with the ZeXtras Suite trial, as the ZxMig export was done more than 30 days ago.

    Have a nice day,
    Cine
