Questions And Answers

 
Q: Can Recovery for Lotus Notes repair my Lotus Notes file?

Note: Always backup your original corrupted Lotus Notes file before proceeding with any recovery activity!

 
Q: What limitations does the demo version of Recovery for Lotus Notes have?
A: The demo version recovers a limited number of strings in each form, equal or less than 20 depending on the original number of strings. The remaining strings will contain "demo" text. Full version of Recovery for Lotus Notes will recover the demo-limited strings as well.

Note that no additional forms or any other elements and features of the original corrupted file will be restored by commercial version of Recovery for Lotus Notes if not present in demo output.

A:

Evaluating the results of demo recovery can help in making the decision.

 
Q: What are the differences between product licenses?
A:

Details of current licensing scheme are described at the Licensing page.

 
Q: Why do results of recovery contain less data than the original Lotus Notes file?
A: This is normal. The damaged parts of your Lotus Notes file will convert to zero size on output. The other common reason of file size decrease is when some of features of the original file are not supported and therefore absent from the recovered file.
Demo-recovered file is smaller because it mostly consists of demo placeholders than actual data.
 
Q: Running Recovery for Lotus Notes from command line (through Windows Start -> Run menu).
A:

If your license type is Enterprise or Service, you can run Recovery for Lotus Notes from command line and use these calls in your batch files. Standard version does not support command line. The format for command line call is:

lnr.exe <original filename with path> "<path to directory to store the recovered file(s)>"
(without angle brackets).

Please note that the directory for recovered file(s) should be created before starting the recovery.

Command line mode supports patterns '*' (replaces group of symbols) and '?' (replaces one symbol).

 
Q: After running Recovery for Lotus Notes on the corrupted file, a folder with dxl script(s) and batch file has been created. How could these files be transfigured into a new file?
A:

To recreate file, process resulting dxl scripts.

To make the import procedure more convenient for the end-user an appropriate batch file is automatically created and put in the same folder as dxl script(s).

Database Creation Utility that comes with Recovery for Lotus Notes is an alternative to re-inserting the data manually. Start the wizard and follow the steps, submitting required information.

 
Q: Processing of dxl files created by Recovery for Lotus Notes does not rebuild the database and/or produce any error messages. What is the problem with?
A: To convert dxl files into a new file, run the batch file called runme.cmd. This file is placed in the same folder as .dxl files. The database will be created automatically from scratch.

You should submit a valid path to notes.exe file (without spaces) to batch file. If some error messages appear during processing of batch file and a new file is not created, try to reinstall Lotus Notes
