I try to restore a public folder with pfdavadmin tool.

I right click the folder I want to recover and choose "recover folder". Then I get this error message:

An unexpected error occured. Exception: The remote server returned an error: (409) Conflict.

Does anyone know this error?

I have tried that and I can see the deleted folder but I get an error 409 in the iis log. When I try to recover the mails from the Outlook client, I get the error that I maybe do not have the right permissions. I tried to give myself owner permissions but that didn't help.

It was very strange. I tried almost everything and nothing worked. About 24 hours later I tried a last time and then it worked??????
