Size Limits?

Feb 24, 2010 at 9:22 PM

Hi,

We're using the Useful Sharepoint Designer Activities on our sharepoint site, and occassionally run into a problem with "Copy List Item Extended".  It seems that when the list item is over 120 MB (give or take a few MB either way), the list item doesn't get copied over, and we get an error message that the server is out of memory.  Our server is fairly powerful, and shouldn't have size or memory limitations for a file of that size?  Has anyone else ever encountered errors like this?

Thanks!

Hi renor321,

We haven't encountered precisely the error you mention, but similar odd "hard limits" in SharePoint 2007. We had the issue when saving sites as templates. You might want to look at http://ramakrishnaraja.blogspot.com/2007_08_25_archive.html - it may help you getting on in your search. It helped us.

Regards, Jan.

Hi Spectrum,

Thanks for getting back to me.  I'm going to look at trying the suggestions in that blog and see if they'll help.  We're also looking at upgrading to WSS SP2 and applying some of the patches and hot fixes (we haven't done any Sharepoint patches, service packs or hot fixes in two years).

Thanks again!
