Groupwise 6.5 moving Documents to another GroupWise system

A groupwise system has had a hard drive failure and lost all DB Files (No Backup).  I have recreated the Groupwise system but cannot import any documents.  It is giving me a E52C error when trying to import a document.

Any ideas on how to import any documents from old library.

Thanks

Was your library in a separate document storage area or was it defined under the Post Office.  If you have it under a document storage area (that is a directory structure away from the PO directory) Novell (via a Service Request) may be able to get everything back for you.

The reason for the error I believe is that the Document Management System has hooks into your old system.  The docs you're trying to import are BLOBs (binary large objects) and are encrypted and have object IDs that are stored in one or more of the .db files under the GWDMS directory.

It may not be possible to recover...you don't have a backup of any kind? (even an older one?)
