User was archiving mail set to 7 days on her local computer.  Her mailbox started to hang when she attempted to open it.  I tried all of my gwcheck tools i.e., rebuild structure, expire and reduce but could not get her box to open without hanging.  Finally I had to delete her box and create another.  Now I have her archive with fid gbz and her new box with fid h5a.

How can I merge them together?  

A few years back I used a tool called mergeit.  I still have mergeit but do not have the key to run and it is no longer available for free download.

The best utility I've used is called the FIDeditor from Novell.  It is command line based and the syntax is a bit tricky.

From what I read in your post, you have FID gbz that represents her old client-based archive.  Now you have a new mailbox/GW account with a FID of h5a but no archive for it correct?

If that is the case, the go to www.novell.com/downloads and search on Fid Editor.  The download filename is GWAFE510.exe.  Don't worry about it saying it only supports GW 5.1.  I've used it quite successfully on version 7 and 8.

Follow the small readme that comes with it to get your syntax correct.

As a last step, you'll rename the OFgbzARC to OFh5aARC directory of her archive.

Hope that helps.

I will give this a try on Monday when I can get to my user's computer and her local drive where she has her archive saved.

Thanks for the help.
