Help with NSF forensics?

Sunday 22 April 2007

I got an interesting email from a guy looking for help with recovering information about deleted documents in a Notes database. This will likely involve some data reconstruction beneath the Notes API layer. If you know what I’m talking about and would like to help, comment here or drop me a line, and I’ll put you in touch.

There's a fellow from Germany named Rudi Knegt who hangs out in the BP Forum who I believe has developed some tools for things like this. And BTW: if you've got access to the HP network yet, then you could get access to the Forum if you wanted to.

I'd be interested in hearing the specific problem. The API is fairly terrible for things like this, so you usually end up just parsing CD records (which aren't documented all that well either).
