Does a Notes file have a maximum size?

This person wants to know if a Notes file can be of unlimited size, or is 64GB the maximum.

VIEW MEMBER FEEDACK TO THIS TIP

I am experiencing an issue with Notes 5.0.10 on a Windows 2000 server. We have not upgraded but it was said that a file could be of unlimited size. But now that our file has gotten to 64GB, we can no longer add anything to it. Was this a bug that I somehow missed?

This could be a limit on database size that you have dumped into. But 64GB is really big. At that size, you are asking for trouble, even if it is supposed to work. My advice is that, if you can, to split the database somehow, or archive parts of it, to make it smaller.

Just saw Chuck's answer to 64GB Notes database. I always thought that 64GB was the largest file size possible under Windows. In theory, a Notes database does not have a size limit, but it is dependent on the operating system's limitations.
