Hi all, 

 

I arrived this morning to a panicked coworker who had accidentally deleted an entire folder instead of a single report from within Management Console "Folders" view.

 

I believe the only way to recover this folder is to run a backup of the entire server machine, is this correct? Is there a utility for undo-ing this sort of delete?

Hello @Djones4822,

 

well, it depends, do you have the SAS Deployment Backup and Recovery tool running? Is your server virtualised?

 

You have several options, the ones I can think of at this moment are:

  1. You can always restore from a backup (or a snapshot if your machine is virtualised, it is quicker).
  2. If you have the SAS Deployment Backup and Recovery tool (in SAS Environment Manager) and you know how to restore from it, it can make the life easier to you by restoring WIP, SAS Content Server and Metadata on a single shot.

In any case, I am sure you will like to keep all the work done since your last backup, hence I would recommend you to make a good Export Package (spk file) with all your latest Metadata items, so you can restore them after the server restore.

 

 

 

 

Hope it helps

 

Kind regards,

Juan

Hi Juan, thank you for your response.

 

Do you have any links to these restore processes so that I can forward them to our IT dept?
