There are various techniques by which an e-mail data is migrated to another application without getting any error. However, many users complain of the error messages while moving Lotus Notes to Outlook and one of the messages is ‘Files Not fully migrated’. Switching from Lotus Notes to Outlook requires conversion of NSF files to PST and if manual methods are followed it creates the problem.
There are three ways to export NSF to PST
- Exporting the NSF Files to Outlook
- Using Microsoft Transporter Suite
- Using NSF to PST Converter
Here we will discuss each process in detail and know steps to remove the NSF error during migration.
Exporting NSF to PST
Try to convert the NSF files to PST by exporting them. You need active account on both Lotus Notes and Outlook.
- Open the Lotus Notes application and from File menu, click on ‘Export’
- Now select the NSF files, folders and other data which you want to move
- Click on Next and select a folder to save this data
- In the Save As type field select ‘Comma Separated Value’ and then click on ‘Export’
- The NSF files will be saved in CSV format
- Now, Open MS Outlook in which you want to export NSF files
- Now click on File>> Open & Export and then click on Import/ Export
- Now select the option ‘Import from Another Program or File’
- In next window select ‘Comma Separated Values (Windows)’
- Click on the Browse button and select the CSV file created
- Finally, click on Finish to export NSF files to Outlook Personal Folders.
Limitation of using this method is that first you requires two active accounts. Next if the file size of NSF is large it will take hours to complete and if an activity require so much time to process it ultimately gets stuck. There are chances that all the files do not get export and it could also result in data loss.
Using Microsoft Transporter Suite
Transporter Suite is a free utility by Microsoft to move files from Lotus Notes to Outlook. The complete process to migrate NSF files using transporter suite is simple but require utmost care. Transporter Suite enables to move several profiles at once but the disadvantage of using the application is that it enables only files up to 4 MB to export. So, if the size of any attachment or other data item in Outlook is more than 4 MB it does not get transferred and it shows the error ‘File Not Completely Migrated’
These limitations prevents users from exporting Lotus Notes to Outlook, so to avoid these error and ensure full migration of files without any error and complete accuracy use NSF to PST Converter.
