Do you have a sample of the code. I am suprised this isn't something that is more popular or easier to do. Also I am not confident thaT I understand that the OST can be restored to a server that is newly installed after a crash.

Can you provide more info?

I appreciate your reponse.

I don't have any code samples, as I don't see a need to backup my folders
twice - the server backup is enough for me.

to restore the items from an ost to a crashed server, set OL offline and
copy the items to a pst, then connect to the server and copy them back.

ow do you set the OL offline. The Offline folder settings "disable offline use" is greyed out. Is this the right setting.

ile, offline menu or in the account properties (where you are looking)
there is an option to start offline, which might be safer in the case of a
server problem.

n your folder list, drag the public folders to the PF\favorites.

I agree with Diane - if you're getting good Exchange backups, this probably
isn't necessary for disaster recovery purposes.
