Avoiding spam with file attachments, they can damage your mail as happened to me. Don't open them. Of course, I understood that it would be impossible to return everything, but the necessary contacts and letters were repaired.

Cory Trujillo03-15-2021

It is a pity that the program does not convert emails from Lotus Notes to .ost. I used your two products of Recovery Toolbox for Lotus Notes and Recovery Toolbox for Outlook. Very useful programs, saved time moving from one mail to another. I recommend.

I switched to Outlook a long time ago due to a damaged .nsf file. And one of the reasons to rapair Lotus Notes is to get old contacts back. In addition to contacts, I also got access to letters. The program coped with the task, I recommend


After repairing the .NSF file, Lotus Notes mail launch immediately. Such a joyful feeling, for the first time I was able to fix something on a PC without a boring IT department


I fixed a truncated Lotus Notes archive, I was able to recover something.

WhatTheF*ck ? Where have you been before? I need such a program !! I got a huge .NSF file that even Lotus Notes itself was slow to open! And at some point, Lotus Notes decided to just damage the file so that we wouldn't torture it anymore. We were looking for a solution to this problem for more than 3 days, 3 DAYS CARL !!! Of course, your program also slightly wanted to f*cking send us, since the .NSF file took 6 hours to repair.

I managed to get contacts from a damage .nsf file. thanks


Damn, it’s impossible to believe it, I was able to get the contacts of my clients from the damaged Lotus Notes mailbox completely FREE!!! The program makes it possible to view the graying of 5 saved letters, from which I was lucky to get the contacts of my clients !!! You guys are super !!!


I was able to recover a corrupted mail from a local copy of the IBM Lotus .NSF file. Some recovered messages were recovered without attachments.


I forcefully closed the program after accidentally clicking on formatting. As a result, the .NSF file was damaged, Lotus notes can not open it. Using the program, it was possible to recover part of the remaining emails, the rest is not known, either it was deleted during formatting, or it was not restored.


When you extract a message from a damaged Lotus Notes email, pay attention to the notes written on the site, this program does not recover encrypted .NSF files. For my Lotus Notes email, this will not work because my damaged .NSF file was previously encrypted. 5 stars for saving my money!


Very unique tool. This tool is not only unique, it is especially effective. All my corrupted nsf docs were restored by this product.


User Friendly tool: 1. It has a great user friendly interface. Just in few clicks your file gets repaired NSF file. 2. It supports recovery IBM Lotus Notes 9 3. You can check your recovered data as preview option, so that you can restore your data accordingly at desired location. 4. Because of its simple user interface, non-technical user manage the tool efficiently.


It's really unique software. This tool rescued me three times when I had lost my .nsf files because of OS failures. Application restores not 100% of corrupted data.
