Do you have Notes at your disposal, installed and operational?
Can you log in, i.e. do you have the necessary credentials to open the database?
Do you have a Domino Designer client?
Can you develop an agent in LotusScript, or can you modify an existing one if we supply some code?

I have Notes client 8.5, Domino designer 8.5 and domino admin 8.5 installed yes ( i am a local admin, so i can work locally but not in the production.

I have worked with Agents before, but never tried to create one, but with some help i might be able to modify the existing code, yes.

I got it working :P sorry for that :) although this was not entirely what i was looking for, yes some of it! but i wanted to check a few files so it would autocreate the folder structure itself not just export the file... would this be possible?

Ah, you want to re-create the structure of the Notes folders, but then as disk folders? Hm, that's different indeed. Firstly, there is no "folder" structure in a Notes database, it only appears that way. A Notes folder is like a Notes view: it has a name and documents in it. If the name happens to have backslashes in it, those backslashes serve as separators between folder names like in a hierarchy.

So the idea would be to go through all objects in NotesDatabase.Views, check whether they are folders, get the folder names and reproduce the structure accordingly.

I solved the problem with exporting from LN and using powershell to create the folder structure and then using the agent you refered to and copied all the files into the correct folders. thank you!
