My company has migrated from Lotus Notes R6 to Outlook. I have a spare old PC with Notes R5 which I was hoping to use to view my R6 archives. However, I get the error message "Invalid NSF version". Does anyone know how to get around the problem of accessing Lotus Notes R6 .nsf files through Notes R5. Thanks Jasmine

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

The only way for you to access the R6 NSF file would be to upgrade to a newer version of the Notes client. You can download a “trial” client from the Lotus web site and then use your old Notes Id file if you still have it to open and read the archive file.

While it is possible to convert the NSF file from R6 format back to R5, that can only be done with code that is in the R6 client (or server) so you are stuck either way with having to get a newer than R5 version of the client.

Or you can try copying the file to an R6 server and open it from the server
