Is it possible to recover Lotus Notes email's that have been deleted if I have a local replica of the database?  The db is 290MB but when I open it everything has been deleted and the trash has been emptied.  Are there any utilities available that will do this?  Do not have any backup tapes going back far enough.

Thank you

Probably not,  since notes is pretty secure, but maybe someone else has an idea.

I'm sorry, but if they're not in the Trash, they are gone from the database. I suppose you have the right provileges to see all mail? You need a replica db on a separate system where the deletions haven't been spread to. Mails haven't been archived accidentally? No April 1st joke (sorry to ask...), it could be a different or completely new database?

Look in the database properties to see how many documents there are.

Did you say that your local replica still has all the documents?

RE:Did you say that your local replica still has all the documents?

No, user has deleted documents and emptied the trash - only 43 documents left but the .nsf file is 290MB so I figure most of the data is still there - just wondering if any utilities are available to do this.

AFAIK there are no such utilities available. When a document is deleted, a stub is left to indicate that that particular document once existed (with the document's unique ID). You could try with the NotesPeek utility, but I can't say I have high hopes...

Bummer!

There's nothing that can be done if you don't have a backup.

ok, thanks everyone for your advice.  Kind of what I thought but figured it never hurts to ask.  Have tried the Notespeek utility and didn't get anything useful out of it.
