Please help. I found my Lotus .NSF file corrupted. It was overwritten to fix the archiving issue. Now that the file size has become 22MB which is default file size for any .NSF file. Now, please help me, I have lost all my mails and when I try to recover. Is there any good software to revert the overwritten and recover the corrupted file?

"Lotus Notes ! Server Error: File truncated - file may have been damaged."

When this occurs, you observe that the affected document contains SP1720248 data in one of its fields. Usually, this happens when a bad sector or block of hard drive has corrupted the Notes document.

User Action

Try one of the suitable solutions:

(1) If possible, delete the damaged document.

(2) Execute fixup command to Repair Lotus Notes database. (did not work for you)

(3) Make a new database replica and use it to replace the corrupted database. Since the corrupted document has not been replicated, this will be recreated when you will again perform the LEI activity.

(4) Use your previous good backup to restore the Notes database.

(5) Use a third-party tool to Repair NSF File.
