The IBM Lotus Notes

Lotus Notes is an application suite that contains various components like email, calendar, contacts, tasks, notes, journals etc. Notes Storage Facility (NSF) is the proprietary storehouse especially meant for Lotus Notes, which gets stored either locally or on a server. The entire information associated with a Lotus Notes mailbox is stored in usernames.nsf

IBM Notes create so many data files that signify specific reason, but two files among them are mainly used for data storage, i.e. names.nsf (for address book) and username.nsf (for Mailbox). There is no other secondary application that can access NSF File other than Lotus Notes itself.
