Hi Guys,
I have configured a Webdav server on Windows 2008 R2 using IIS7 but when I try to upload large files for example as a test I am uplaoding file which is 900MB in size it comes back to me saying "An error copying some or all of the selected files"

I tried playing with the config file but wanted to be sure on what the fix actually is, the requirement is to have files upto 6GB to be uploaded and downloaded.

Thanks in advance guys.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters
Right click on the FileSizeLimitInBytes and click Modify
Click on Decimal
In the Value data box, type 4294967295, and then click OK. Note this sets the maximum you can download from the Webdav to 4 gig at one time, I haven’t figured out how to make it unlimited so if you want to download more you need to split it up.

Hi Vinsin!

Is this seeting on the server or the windows XP machine coz on the server I dont have a "WebClient" Sub-key but on my XP machine I do so i created that anyways to the value u just mentioned but you have also said that  this is for the download but I am not able to upload file over 300 Mb (I tried uploading a .pst file for testing)

Since I am using IIS 7 I went to the "Default Website" in ISS console and double clicked on "Request filtering --> edit feature settings and Maximum allowed content length I changed it to 4294967295"

I also did the same for my Webshare virtual directory where the user connect its under the Default Website Site and I went and modified the same value under the Request Filtering Icon"

After which I did a IISRESET
I am currently uploading a 350 MB pst fie lets see if I succeeed this time....
