Later this week we are finally going to release a new Defrag.NSF family member for the Notes Client.
"Defrag.NSF for Notes" is a Notes client addin that automatically defragments your Notes Program and Data directory shortly after the client starts. It will also periodically check and if the files have re-fragmented it will put them back into shape. A nice solution for an age old problem.
Here are some answers to questions we think people may have:
How much will Defrag.NSF for Notes cost ?It will be FREE for all licensed users of Defrag.NSF (our Domino Server product)
I have 20,000 clients can I install it on all those machines ?Yes, as long as you have an active Defrag.NSF (for Domino) license.
Will it make much difference to my Notes client startup times ?If fragmentation is slowing your client, then this will absolutely help. You should also note the IBM does recommend defragmenting your drive for optimal performance after a Notes Install.
Do I need to download any other third party software to make this work ?No. All the components are included.
How do I install it ?It is a simple MSI you need to run. You need admin privileges to install it. This can be scripted.
Will it work when a user is logged on with limited privileges ?Yes.
Can I continue to use Defrag.NSF without an active Defrag.NSF licenese ?No. If you don't have an active Defrag.NSF license you need to uninstall and stop using Defrag.NSF for Notes.
Does the product require a license key ?No. We trust you will do the right thing.
Why wouldn't I just use a Windows Defragger ?You have the choice. Defrag.NSF for Notes only defrags files related to Notes, so it is super quick and helps ensure you have a responsive Notes Client.
Can I schedule when Defrag.NSF runs ?Not in the initial release. This is a set and forget product.
Warning - There is no basic Widget support in iNotes 9
Thu, Apr 4th 2013 4:49p Adam Osborne This one caught us by surprise - the bottom line is the 8.X technique for adding a Widget to the iNotes Mail outline no longer works. It is summed up by this line in Technote 1627817 "In iNotes 9.0, the Widgets folder in the Mail outline is no longer supported. The documentation surrounding this feature remains in the iNotes 9.0 documentation but does not apply to iNotes 9.0." Go ahead, read it again ... Instead of using the old technique of a single XML file, you need to follow the proced [read] Keywords: inotes

ND9 - First Impression, lose the Emo colour scheme.
Thu, Dec 13th 2012 4:25p Adam Osborne There is so much to like in the ND9 Beta, but seriously what is with the black and white IBM Social Theme ! I love colour. Luckily you can change the scheme back via Preferences, Windows and Themes. Once colour is reintroduced, everything like much brighter and the layouts are clearer. I realise that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I hope IBM pole other people's options before they make this the new default. [read] Keywords: ibm
