Confluence restore only attachements folder



my confluence server is crashed. 

Is it possible to make a restore only with the attechements folder??

Without any other datas of home directory, no entities.xml or> only attachements folder!


Thank you for your help

Just to expand on why Jeremy is asking about your use case:

A backup of Confluence needs to take the database (either as an xml backup, found in <confluence home>/export) or as a standard database backup, plus the attachments.

If you don't have either type of database backup, then you can't restore your Confluence, because there's nothing to restore from.

Exactly, @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] :-).

Dear Kattner,

No, you cannot restore Confluence with just the Attachment folder. These Attachments need to go somewhere. What exactly is your use case?

Kind Regards,
