DataVare NSF 2 PST migration is done in case we need to migrate data from Lotus Notes to MS Outlook. There are some manual ways of converting like installing using Import feature in Lotus Notes and MS Outlook, but these methods are complicated, tedious and and not practical if we need to transfer the entire Lotus Notes Database.
