Files to copy when migrating your Lotus Notes installation to a new computer (Windows Mac)



You have a new workstation to which you need to transfer your Lotus Notes configurations and data. What are the default files a user needs to copy over from the old workstation to the new workstation?

Resolving The Problem

The necessary system files are as follows:
1. Personal Address Book (typically Names.nsf; check the NAMES entry in the Notes.ini to confirm).
2. Bookmark.nsf
3. Desktop.ndk
4. Notes.ini
5. The user’s .ID file.


Folder location

The user’s.nsf
The user’s.ID

Folder location

You may use the below code to change directory to the above folder
cd ‘/Users/{YourUserName}/Library/Application Support/IBM Notes Data’
