What version/SP of GroupWise?

I take it that your GW administrator hasn't centrally configured network-based GW Archive folders?

Whatever version you have, you should be able to find where the archive folders are stored on the source computer by, in the GroupWise client, going to Tools, Options, Environment and selecting the File Location tab.  If it's centrally managed, the Archive Directory box might be grayed-out but you should still see where the archive folder is located - drive and folder name.

If it's on the C:\ drive, create a folder of the same name in the new computer and copy the contents of that folder from the old computer to the new one.

Archive files are stored in the archive directory in another directory named for the FID of the user.  It would be like
C:\Mailarc\OFxxxARC where the "xxx" is the user FID.  

If the user has already created archives on the new computer, you have to somehow merge the old and new archives, for which there are TIDs describing how to do this, on the Novell support site.

Again, a lot of this is hinging on how archiving is configured in the GroupWise system, what version/SP you have, and whether or not there are existing, different archives for the same user on both PC's (if they *are* on the C:\ drive.)

Note that unless the user has a laptop, their archives should not be stored locally, but rather stored at a central, easy-to-back-up, server with lots of cheap disk space and fast access - which also makes it easier to convert to a managed mail archive store for regulatory compliance purposes...
