DATABASE is corrupted --- cannot allocate space

By WilfridStafford ·
I had a archived copy of my email on the local system. Due to some problem my C: drive of the system got corrupted and i had already taken one copy of my archive folder. After reinstalling the OS and Lotus Notes now i have kept the archive copy in the same folder DATA\Archive\batabasename. Now when i try to access the archive it gives message a " DATABASE is corrupted --- cannot allocate space""
I tried to move the archived copy of the DB to server and applied following commands but non of them worked..
Load compact databasename -c
Load updall databasename -c
I have Lotus version 7
Any idea?

DATABASE is corrupted --- cannot allocate space

Try to repair this kind of file:
- put it on a server (if it is not already)
- add the line SKIP_FIXUP=1 in the notes.ini of the server (this prevents the consistency check of the database)
- restart the server
- run the command "load compact databasename -M" (this error often occurs with an old ODS version database limited to 1 Gb and this command extend the db to 4 Gb)
Or you can try to use Lotus Notes Repair Kit for repair your file
After that, you should open the database.
