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.
