Hi

How many files and folders are already in the document library that you are trying to upload to.

5,000,000 files is the limit on a Document Library
2000 files with in a folder
and the limit on actual depth of a folder with in a folder is temperamental.
The Content Database where the site is stored has a limit of 100Gb.

If you are not hitting any of the hard caps I would then look at what you are uploading the size/file extension and so on.

Regards

Chris

Hi

We resolved this with the help of MS.

This is what we had to do.

Cannot create a new folder within a Shared Documents folder in Sharepoint  
Users may receive a FORM SUBMISSION message about Upload.aspx

To resolve this problem
 
1. Open Sharepoint Designer
2. Browse to the site that has the problem using SharePoint designer.
3. Open the Sharepoint site in question
4. Open the Shared Documents Folder
5. Right click on Upload.aspx (If its 10kb in size its likely to be affected)
6. Select Reset to Site Definition
 
Within a minute or so this should resolve the problem
