To come out from this pathetic situation, either you have to perform a process to compact NSF file to remove this scenario or you have to Convert Lotus Notes to Outlook to access the same data in Outlook Platform. Whenever the size limit of the NSF mailbox file has exceeded an error message displays on the screen: “Warning, database has exceeded its size warning threshold”.

If the officials of the organization ignore the error then they will get one more error surely after few days as “Cannot allocate database object, the database would exceed its disk quota”.
In an enterprise, there are several reasons that are responsible to enlarge the size of the NSF database file and make it unallocated for the Domino/Lotus Notes email client.
All these factors contribute to an NSF file to increase the size quota of Lotus Notes database file.
