Hello,
I have a damaged NSF file and I am not sure what happened to it. The error message says that the file is truncated and may have been damaged. Is there a repair tool available for NSF files? Does Lotus Corp have any free tool to open or correct this file?
Thanks!

The error message you are receiving does happen from time to time, but often there is a fairly simple method of resolving it.

Hi…

The process you go through to try and fix a corrupted NSF file is to run the sequence of fixup, compact and then updall.

To do this go to the console and run the following commands:

LOAD FIXUP database (Remembering to add -J switch if transactional Logging is on)
When this has finished then:
LOAD COMPACT database (you may need to add a switch here depending on your system config i.e. -B), and finally:
LOAD UPDALL Database (Usually with -r switch).

If you find that this does not solve the problem, then try running these commands from a DOS Command line without the Domino Server running - it can sometimes be more thorough.
The switches can all be found in the help file.  If this does not help, then try to restore the file using the
Lotus Notes Recovery Toolbox tool. http://www.oemailrec...s_recovery.html
Good Luck.
