  2. Enter the command: nfixup.exe X:/.nsf (+enter)

    This command initiates a general scan of the NSF file and tries to repair it when corrupted. After competion index the NSF file again with Intella. If you still have an issue indexing, continue with the following step.

  3. Enter the command: ncompact.exe X:/.nsf (+enter)

    This command compacts the NSF file. After competion index the NSF file again with Intella. If you still have an issue indexing, continue with the following step.

  4. Enter the command: nupdall –r X:/.nsf (+enter)

    This command rebuilds the entire NSF index. After competion index the NSF file again with Intella.

    The answers would help.

Please note: If you have more than one NSF file, you can use the commands listed above on a directory of NSF files by entering the directory name and not the NSF file name. For example: nfixup.exe X:/
