Default file size is 4 MB in asp.net you can increase the size by modifying web.config file

you can use the free NeatUpload component which also provides a progress bar 9nice for a 237 mb file): http://www.brettle.com/neatupload

TechTiger007: worked fine, seems there is a 2,000,000 limit to the technique of adding:
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2080000"/> to the web config file.
