Backing up and restoring Notes® client files

Domino® administrators should periodically back up Notes® applications and files for users.

About this task

Backing up a Notes® user's personalized data and settings periodically, and specifically prior to Notes® client upgrade, is suggested. For current details on Notes® client backup and restore, and how backup and restore can be simplified by use of Notes® roaming user enablement, see the Notes® and Domino® wiki article on backup and restore in the related information.

Note: Much backup and restore is not necessary for Notes® roaming users as their personalized applications and files are not held on the local client system but rather reside centrally on a roaming server, which is presumably backed up on a consistent basis.
