Hi Guys .. I have 2 questions ... 1.Is there a way to archive a mail file then place it on a CD .. I've tried several things ..ie FT indexing ..and removing all events coding prior to placing on a CD ...but it continues, when opening from the CD,to try and write to the CD (my guess ODS stuff) ...I thought about creating a different Database and new form instead of the memo form ..I know or at least think Notes DB's can be opened from a CD .. 2. Archiving again ... Can the Archiving process be forced to archive to a non-Notes server ??? like an NT share ... All this has to do with the fact that our laptops have limited space on the local drives here ... Thanks TD
I haven't archived to CD recently, but I remember it could be done if you took the database and ran an Updall -c -r against it to build all possible views. You then burned that file to CD. I believe you can't have anything like maintaining unread marks or tracking user history enabled. Those require writes to the database. Good luck!
As for question 2, archiving is usually set for local, so going to a non-Notes server is actually how it was designed. When you setup/modify your archive profile, just point it to the drive you want to use. The only thing you lose by accessing a database on a file share instead of a running Notes server is the ability to share the file. Only one person can view the entire database at a time. Since this is for personal archive mail, this limitation shouldn't be a problem. Mike
