I am currently upgrading from 6.5 to 8.5. Having a problem with Group Files. What do I need to do to make sure my Group files are upgraded to the new version. Right now, some of the computers work fine, and then some I have lost all the Group files. For the contact files, I export them first and then import them when the upgrade is complete. What do I need to do to the Group files to make sure I don't loose any of them?

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

Should not require you to do anything. The names.nsf, which holds contacts an groups on a local users machine, is only getting a design refresh.

Are you certain you are not changing what was once a Multi-user install back to a single user install, or the other way around, changing a single user install into a multi-user install?

I only ask because that would change where the Notes client looks for the names.nsf. Also, if you for standards reasons, change the data directory, same issue. You only need to move the names.nsf to the correct data directory and the situation would be rectified.

    Thank you for your answer. All the systems are single users, and never been multiple users. I will check the situation when I return on Tuesday. This might explain why it works on some computers and not on others. Thanks again for your answer.
