export to pst a subfolder underneath a folder with spaces

Hello all,

I'm trying to export a folder from an archive.

this is a subfolder underneath a folder with spaces in the name.

The exact location is: inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL

I am typing in in the Export to PST window:

\inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL

Export starts, finishes almost immediately, and states it exported 0 items. I verified in Archive Explorer and Search, that there should be 2500 items in that folder. The SCL folder also has subfolders, and the checkbox "Export items from subfolders below root" has been ticked.

I tried several formats:

\inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL
\inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL\

"\inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL"

"\inbox\2006 M to Z active\SCL\"

none work. I verified the index (no issues). Should I try a rebuild? Is there another option? I tried this on my own archive, and succesfully exported a folder using \2013\EU EV Attempt\Folder1

Anyone a suggestion what to try next?

 

Regards. Gertjan

Maybe try a SQL query against the ArchiveFolder table and do a copy from the folder path column
 

SELECT REPLACE(CAST(FolderPath as varchar(max)), '?', '\') AS FolderPath

FROM ArchiveFolderViewWithDeletedFolders

WHERE ArchiveVEID = 'yourArchiveID'

ORDER BY FolderPath ASC

According to this post it works even with spaces: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/export-particular-folder-pst

Maybe grab a dtrace...
