LOTUS archive file .nsf lost

I selected all the mails from an inbox folder and clicked on Archive selected documents. It took a long time. I left the system for some work. When I got back, I saw that the .nsf file was just 119 KB. Even before I started the archive, it was around 2 MB or so. Is there a way that I can retrieve the archived emails?

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

The reason why it took alot of time is because it was moving emails from the inbox which is located at the server to the local archive file .

The only way is to check with your administrator if there is any backup on the server .

Moreover, I recommend you to select documents and then select ” Archive Selected Documents”

    After archiving the original Lotus notes maildata file(NSF file) size reduced from 2 MB to 119 KB.Means either some items got accidentally deleted from the original file or removed for the original file but exist in archived file. It depends on the archive settings done by user. Have you checked the message that appeared on the status bar after completion of the archiving process? It clearly indicates indicating how many documents were archived and how many documents were deleted. You can also check the history by choosing Actions - Archive - Open Log, Then, vewing the archive log file is named archive\l_xxxxxx.nsf, Try importing the archive file(default archive file archive\a_xxxxxx.nsf located at Lotus/Notes/Data/Archive/a_flast.nsf ) , I guess all your mailbox items still exist there.
