How to Restore a Public Folder subfolder from recovery database

I need to restore a Public Folder subfolder from a recovery database.  We are running Exchange 2013, and I am using the following as a guide for the restore:

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2013/08/23/recovering-public-folder-information-in-exchange-2013/

Unfortunately, the commands given in the guide do not work for subfolders.  If I try to supply the name of the subfolder in the -IncludeFolders tag, the restore request completes with 0 items transferred.  If I try to provide the full folder path to the subfolder, the command errors out at the first \ character, saying that the folder name contains an invalid escaped character at position 1.

Is there a different set of commands to restore just a Public Folder subfolder without restoring the entire root folder?

How about you try to restore the complete parent folder and later move the subfolder ?

Only thing is if you try to restore parent folder , it will already present in current PF, and restoring it will replace current data with old data from backup .

There is no clear document on how to restore subfolder. I think you will have to test with few test sub folder PF to understand the behaviour

Found the solution.  For the New-MailboxRestoreRequest command, you need to use '\' in your folder paths.  Once I made that change, the restore worked as expected.
