How to backup iFolder information on the server side?


Novell iFolder 1.01


If the IFOLDER directory is backed up it can be restored so long as the end users pass phrase has not been changed between the back procedure and when the files is restored. It is important to understand that the users directories on within the IFOLDER server are encrypted. You will not be able to restore individual files.  You can however restore individual account. To do this you can login to the iFolder Administration Server at https://DomainOrIPAddress/iFolderServer/Admin. Then go to USER ACCOUNTS. If you hover the mouse over the individual user you are trying to restore, you will notice a HEX number in the status bar a the bottom of the browser. This HEX number is the name of the users folder under SYS:/IFOLDER directory. This can then be replaced with a copy from backup, but the pass phrase must be the same at the time of the restore.
