Lotus Notes Database getting corrupted

Some top Managers keep the mail backup size of high size like 5GB - 15 GB. We are getting calls about corrupt db and there is no solution except keeping the database size around 2 GB. Please remove the size limitation and corruption of mail db

    I would be surprised if this was directly related to the size of the DB.

    There are lots of reasons for corruption. e.g. Anti virus scanning the DBs/transaction logs, hard disk failure, MS shadow copy operating on the drive, non compatible backup software.

    I have lots of mail db & other dbs larger than 2 gb without any problems.

    there was a problem like this a long long time ago with DBs created on Windows on an ntfs drive when Windows had a 2 gb limit. 

    If I remember correctly the way to fix it was too create a new replica of the database
