Enable NIFNSF in Notes Client

NIFNSF feature seems to be a good option to improve local backups by decreasing the size of the NSFfiles.


It should be enabled for Notes Clients too

    Do you backup your local Notes data directory?
    By storing view indexes outside of the NSF, how much storage do you think will be saved in your local backup?

    Yes, i do backup of local Notes data. Because i change laptop frequently, and it is faster than replcating many Gigs of dbs again.

    I expect to save at least a couple of GBs, of a current backup of 9-10 GB.

    What I mean is how much storage do you expect to save per database?
    e.g. from a 5 GB NSF file, what percentage of it do you expect to be data vs. index related?
