Framework Folders - Deleted Folder Recovery

Skip hours of digging through database backups to restore that folder tree a user has accidentally deleted. And remember how these folders were needed to be restored... well, yesterday, because all items they have deleted by accident were uber-important?

The new Content Server 12c now includes the Trash feature added back to new Framework Folders. Clients have been missing that for a long time!

For those of you who are staying with 11g for the next little while, we have developed a solution that will tie you over (with comfort) until you're ready to upgrade.

Here's how it works: each time a folder delete service is exectured, the content of the folder (and all of it's sub-folders and files) is stored and checked in as an XML file.

Restore operation is then becomes very simple:

  • Locate recovery record for the folder you're looking to restore
  • Click 'Restore' ... and you're done
The folder structure is restored and the files are un-expired for you, bringing the folder into a staging area where you can review the content and move it back to the tree.

There you have it. You can now code your own Folder Recovery component or let me know if you need more information
