Hi, 

You will use fix corrupted database by using ‘nfixup’ and ‘ncompact’. You will use these with the help of few easy steps:

Copy the NSF file into a new local location that has Lotus Notes
Using the Command prompt go to Lotus Notes home. (i.e. c:\lotus\notes )
Run the commands:
(Enter the user’s Notes password if prompted)
nfixup.exe <filename>.nsf
ncompact.exe -c <filename>.nsf
Once the file has been fixed and compacted. Rename the original NSF in source (i.e. _bkup or _currupt) to distinguish the corrupt version from the fixed one.
Add the fixed NSF to source and process as needed.  
 

NSF – The standard container for data in the Lotus Notes architecture is NSF (Notes Storage Facility).
