Subject: Lotus Notes 8
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Notes 8 Client
Technical Area: Crash
Platform: Windows Vista client
Release: 8.0.2
Reproducible: Always

I accidentally deleted the whole lotus\notes\data directory (which includes an archived mail database) from c:\ on a PC and cleaned up recycled bin too.
I want to get the archived database back. The archived database has file extension of .nsf
I tried ntfs undelete program to no avail.
Seems to me that there is something special about this type of file 'cos I was able to retrieve .doc and .exe files using ntfs undelete without any drama.
Could anyone suggest any solution or tool to recover this .nsf file? Thanks!
OS: Win 7 SP1
Application: Lotus Notes 8.0.2
