Hi:

 Try
                          ALTER INDEX <index> STORAGE ( MAXEXTENTS UNLIMITED);

where <index> is the index of the table ATTACHEDFILES.

My suggestion would be not to alter PCTINCREASE. Better to change MAXEXTENTS to UNLIMITED. Already the SQL statement for making the change has been provided. You can issue the statement by logging into SQL Plus. Remember, it is a change to the object only. You are not doing any database level change.

You might run into the same issue with another table or index. You can follow the same steps. Or you can pro-actively change it for all the objects! Better to set MAXEXTENTS to UNLIMITED for all the objects. To avoid doing this manually, you can set the storage parameter for the tablespace itself, so that all the new objects by default will have it set as UNLIMITED.
