Good morning.

Vibe file and folder recovery works fine as long as a user does not check the Purge immediate flag.

However once a user checks that flag file and folder recovery becomes horrible.

We need to restore Oracle and Lucerne databases to last known good points in a parallel environment and basically build a parallel Vibe installation to access the files.

Our users expect Vibe to have the same recovery speeds as an OES file server would, where its mere minutes as we can back it up and restore it with commercial backup solutions.

What are you doing to backup and recover files from their Vibe installations?

And is there any way to remove the purge immediate option? We have checked the docs and most recovery steps say to contact Novell technical Support.
