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 the message:

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 ?

  • You have a corrupted file. There is missing and damaged data. If you have a backup copy, restore it. Otheriwse, you are almost certainly out of luck. – rhsatrhs Aug 31 '15 at 2:53

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) After that, you should open the database.
