I'll try to keep this as concise as possible, but I'm still using Win 7 and TB 91.11.0. I've been using TB for more years than I can remember and my TB data folder is 24 Gig. For simplicity, I have always backed up the entire TB folder with EaseUs ToDo Backup on a daily basis. My service provider has changed hands and all my ISP settings have changed. (For the 3rd or 4th time over the years) As result, I had 3 or 4 accounts with this ISP, and to cover any stray email addresses coming in, had them all set up to accept them, with each one forwarding to my "Local Folder". All has been working fine now for nearly 10 years. When the ISP changed over, it all stopped!
In my effort to change any one of the incoming addresses to accomodate the new setting requirements, I got all tangled up and lost any connection ability at all. To recover, I tried to remove each of the accounts in the settings, and now have lost ALL my mail and mail boxes. Because I have been backing up daily, I thought it would be simple to use my daily backups to restore to the last date that things worked. What I never anticipated, was it taking 20 hours to do the restore. And then the account settings still reflected my latest attempts to "fix" things.
Since there are SO many files and folders on the HD where my data resides, is there a way to isolate the necessary files needed to get me back to what it was when it went down? The only thing that really needed to be changed was my account settings for the ISP. But because of the complexity of the file structure, I'm wary of slicing and dicing some of these files. One good thing about EaseUs ToDo Backup, is I can use my file explorer to open the backed up files and structure.
Any help or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
