Groupwise problem

Groupwise problem

Groupwise problem

(OP)
I've deleted the msg.db, ngwguard.db, user.db, ngwguard.dc files on my computer, so I can´t view the emails. But I've the complete information on differents files (almost 4Gbps)
Anyone could help me in order to restore the database information.

RE: Groupwise problem

We need more information. Were you running a locally cached copy of Groupwise. Why did you delete them (accident)? Can you just restore them using something like GetDataBack or other product.

I've deleted the files by mistake. The files were deleted from the archive backup
Do you know if it's possible to view these email using Groupwise or other program

RE: Groupwise problem

It is not possible to view the messages in a third party app with out access to the files you deleted.

I´ve checked it, but it's not solved

RE: Groupwise problem

Then cross your fingers and hope that the blocks on the hard disk that held the files have not been over written yet.

You will need to do a file undelete. I like the Recuva app from http://www.piriform.com/ my self for this need. If you can recover the NGWGUARD.DB file, you will be able to rebuild the msg.db and user.db doing a structural rebuild in GWCheck. It also requires that you did not delete anything else but the files you noted in your OP.

The DC file is easily replaceable, just pull it from the PO folder in distribution media. There is not user data in the file, it is just database schema.
