Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

I need to restore a user so that we can do an investigation about some allegations, and I need to do so in a way that the user doesn’t know about the initial investigation (it is feared that the person will start deleting all messages).

How can I get access to restored content without having to change person’s password on the production system? I do have a restore point set up.

And here’s the reply from Dave Parkes …

Solution

1. Restore the system somewhere else.

2. Use the standalone GWCheck program to clear the passwords on the restored system.

3. Use a client to connect directly to that restored area. For example:

grpwise.exe /ph-<pathtorestoredsystem>
