} I used the following commands:
} cd /var/lib/news
} /etc/rc.d/init.d/innd stop
} rm -r /var/spool/news/overview/*
} makehistory -b -e -f history.n -O -I -F -T/var/lib/news/tmp -l 1

I suspect '-I' might cause the problem.  Could you try
without '-I'?  It's also necessary to renumber active
with 'ctlinnd renumber ""'after innd is started.  I
also note '-l 1' should reduce the speed of makehistory.
I recommend not to specify unless you have any reason.

It is ok now!
In the spool existed very old files, I want to keep files only 1 year (in
expire.ctl: *:A:365:365:365)
after removing older files from the spool with:
`find /var/spool/news/articles/Groupname/ -mtime +365 -exec rm -f {} \;`
then remove overview, makehistory and renumber:
`rm -r /var/spool/news/overview/*`
`makehistory -b -e -f history.n -O -F -T/var/lib/news/tmp -l 1`
`/etc/rc.d/init.d/innd start`
`ctlinnd renumber ""`

Everything seemed to be ok now!
Thank you very much!
