I had a typo in one of my exclusion rules and I have mistakenly archived some specific directories that impacts performance of an application. I need to un-archive these specific directories. Is there an easier way to do this than to make a copy of the directory using Windows Explorer?
The only was I found was to copy and paste the folder, which you have already tried. Currently there is no way to choose a specific folder to recall. Would be a nice option though.
One method is to use a find command to walk the directory tree. Make sure the recall policy is set to full recall, instead of passthrough, while this command is run. Here is the CLI for Windows.
dir /b /s Z: | findstr /off /f:/ zebraspots
(Z: is mapped drive letter and can be full path to directory on drive letter. zerbraspots is an obscure name to search for.)
