Yes, Harvester can search and collect Lotus Notes NSF files.
When creating a job, there are options to include loose NSF’s (NSF files that are not attached or active), Mounted NSF’s (NSF files that are attached to a Lotus Notes account), and Live NSF’s (NSF files that are attached and open).
When selecting loose and mounted NSF’s for collection, there are options for processing which include:
– Include or exclude the listed email address/domain name from search
– Date range search
– Create a working copy in the target location
In order to collect live NSF’s, Harvester uses a utility called VSS (Volume Shadow Services) to create a Shadow Volume of the source(s) listed for collection. This allows files that are normally locked (not able to be accessed or copied) to be enumerated and copied. Harvester 4.0.3028 and newer will automatically attempt a VSS copy for files in use (Harvester must be run as Administrator).
NOTE: Users must have 32-bit Lotus Notes installed in order to keyword search NSF’s, however, it is not required if users are just copying the file in its entirety.
