When you have a sogo-tool backup for user anna in directory ./backup/
you can list her calendars and addressbooks with:

/usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -l ./backup/ anna

This will give you something like this:

<0x0x191ea60[SOGoCache]> Cache cleanup interval set every 900.000000 seconds
<0x0x191ea60[SOGoCache]> Using host(s) 'localhost' as server(s)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.685 sogo-tool[26667] Restorable folders:
2019-06-14 09:31:43.688 sogo-tool[26667]
Calendar/2013-5614DA00-3-4EA7FE00 (Import Example)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.688 sogo-tool[26667]
Calendar/55D4-57CD2C80-47-7C164080 (Superduper)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.689 sogo-tool[26667]
Calendar/c81a287ec3c4719de08fae31306f851d (Pickwick)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.689 sogo-tool[26667]
Calendar/e6dd60a375bd4c01a6416cacf763b33a (Normal-Tasks)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.689 sogo-tool[26667] Calendar/personal
(Persönlicher Kalender)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.689 sogo-tool[26667] Contacts/collected
(Gesammelte Adressen)
2019-06-14 09:31:43.689 sogo-tool[26667] Contacts/personal
(Persönliches Adressbuch)

If you want to restore calendar "Import Example" to the state of your
backup and discard all changes made to it since then, use:

/usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -F Calendar/2013-5614DA00-3-4EA7FE00
./backup/ anna

If you just want to restore accidently deleted events and keep all
changes made since your backup, use:

/usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -f Calendar/2013-5614DA00-3-4EA7FE00
./backup/ anna

For addressbooks you just have to exchange the Calendar/... part with
Contacts/... one.

If the user deleted the whole calendar or address book, you also can
restore its settings afterwards with:

usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -p ./backup/ anna

This will restore all settings, not just the ones for the restored

If you use SIEVE in SOGo, then you have to use:

usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -p -c /etc/sogo/sieve.creds ./backup/ anna

This will also restore all SIEVE rules in your IMAP/SIEVE server.
