Restore Notes email from backup tape
Posted on 2011-02-24
Hi all, I am in the process of testing the backup and restore process in our workplace and I am not sure how to restore our Lotus Notes email. So far I could restore users mail file to a certain folder on the server. My questions are:
1. If the user only wants a few emails to be restored and not the whole email database, how can I do that?
2. How do I restore the whole database if I need to? Can I just do it in OS level?
3. I looked in the help file that compacting with -B parameter reduces the file size but it assign a new DBID. If I need to recover the mail file before the compact happens, will the user still able to user the old mail file?
