Hello, I have two question about client & mail db upgrade from R5.x to R6.5.4 (strange, but someone must still make it...): randomly in the new desktop old workspace disappears, and the user (or the administrator) must to recover it from the toolbar preferences; after conversion (convert -u), the mail database size increase much more of the previewed one (10 Mb), based on the number of folder created by the user; someone can gives its opinion to me? Thank You in advance, Maurizio

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have found that sometimes the workspace will not migrate cleanly depending on how old was. Newer clients were fine but perhaps older clients had issues. Hit and miss on being able to predict it. In general, I would delete the existing cache.dsk and desktop6.ndk and let it build a new one from the old R5 desktop.ndk (or desktop5.ndk, don’t remember which) vs recovering the old one.

The reason the MF is much larger after the conversion is the MF template for iNotes6.ntf is much larger than the MF template for mail5.ntf. All the design elements will add about 10MB in size to the MF. With the number of folders a client will have if the convert upgrades their folders than they get the new size of the Inbox folder.

    Erik, thank You for reply, I wrote the message because the increase has been much more than expected... we considered an increase of max 50 MB for big (1 GB) and complex (200 folder) MF (moreover the italian mail template that we used is normally bigger than the english one...); but in some case the increase has been of 80-90 MB, and we ask ourselves if there is something wrong... Best Regards Maurizio
