Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4 2GHz / 4 gigs.
The legal department of our company has asked us to restore a particular users email from backup from 2 years ago. We were able to find a couple of NSF files from the requested time period, but no ID files and we have since migrated from Notes to Exchange. So is there a way to recover the email from NSF file without the ID file and without the Domino server? We think the files were generated with Lotus Notes version 7.

✔ Best Answer
So you didn't back up the ID-file of every user or the server?? Oh dear me...
NSF databases are in a special format, and the easiest way to read them is with Lotus Notes, so you won't see anything readable when you try with Notepad or so. If the database is not encrypted, you might be able to read it with Notes client, provided that the user left the door open (the ACL in this case).
