Can whole folders restore occur from a File and Folder backup?

Problem

Since direct folder restores are capable from full-disk backups through a restore, the recovery point browser, or by mounting the image as a virtual drive and simply drag and drop the folder(s), but can whole folders restore occur from a File and Folder backup?

Solution

An entire folder cannot be restored directly.
If the Destination is set to Original Folder when recovering a file then the folder structure for that file will be recreated. Direct folder restores are only supported from full-disk backups.
