So it is very important to manage these files as a small corruption of these files can lead to total disruption of your data. As these files store all your database,they become large sized over the time.

Basically there are two ways to split archive files in Lotus Notes. One is manual split and other is using a NSF tool splitter.

You can take the help of IBM Notes client software, which has an inbuilt feature which let users to transfer the old data from on NSF database to another. Unfortunately, this feature might not help you to split NSF file but it can help you to decrease or compress the actual size of your file.

However, manual method has certain limitations as it is slow and may result in data loss.So it is wise to use a NSF split tool. The NSF Split tool quickly divides large NSF file into small files without any data loss. It has self descriptive interface, user do not need any prior technical knowledge to split a NSF file.  In addition to it, you can also split your mailbox, archive and contacts into manageable sizes.  The NSF splitter is easy to use, reliable with an independent saving feature making it one of the most advanced tools to split lotus notes archive scripts
