At the operating system level, I accessed Properties of an .NSF in my Lotus Notes data folder -> Advanced attributes -> Compress contents to save disk space. After this operating system compression, the size of the .NSF file was the same, but the size on disk was reduced by 40%. How does this differ from Lotus Notes compression (from the Notes administrator client)? Is this a size reduction in addition to the Lotus Notes compression?
