    Is this possible? We often have requests to restore ONLY the mail folders, and NOT to touch any other files, etc.... (ie: Client has deleted all their email by mistake)

    Is it possible to do this without having to manually open the tar file, extra the mail folders, etc...?

    ie: Can we add another restore checkbox option to WHM that says something like:

    [checkbox] Restore *only* /mail/* folders?

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    No, you'd have to do it by hand from shell by expanding the backup tarball for the account and then copying the apporpriate directories over the live ones, remembering to preserve the file ownerships and permissions.
