Hi,

Uploading such a huge data that is 2048 MB in the first case and in second case trying to upload data 9766 MB is too much large. So the primary reason of exception is that you are crossing the limit of Asp.Net engine to upload the data back to the server.

I read a paragraph: (Refernce: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa479405.aspx)
The value given the executionTimeout attribute is the number of seconds the upload is allowed to occur before being shut down by ASP.NET. If you are going to allow large files to be uploaded to the server, you are also going to want to increase this value along with the maxRequestLength value

They say that sometimes exception is there because of mismatching of size limits of file in Asp.Net and the file uploaded by the user (http://aspnetresources.com/articles/dark_side_of_file_uploads).


I would personally suggest you to keep your file size upto some 100MBs only. And here is the article that bets for uploading file on any size (http://www.15seconds.com/issue/071025.htm)


Regards,
VSS
