WebDav IIS7 problems copying large files.

I'm having problems with copying large files using webdav to an SBS 2008 (IIS7) server.

I've mapped a drive (to L:) and set up authentication so that ony authenticated users can access the folders.

WebDav works as planned on small files but I get the

"There is a problem accessing L:\",
"Make sure you are connected to the network and try again"

Network Error message on large files

Any clues on a fix would be greatly appreciated

Interestingly, I get "

An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the folder. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

Error 0x800700DF: The file size exceeds the limit allowed and cannot be saved.

<file name>

Try again Cancel"

Error trying to copy it back from SBS2008 to Win 7.

I've checked through http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900900 and chaged the registry key to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\FileSizeLimitInBytes to 0xffffffff on both the Win 7 and SBS machines but still get the error.

SBS 2008 has Sharepoint 3.0 on it but the website/server I set up for Webdav is separate from it and is running under the Default App Pool.

Anyway, I've been through...
* http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944981/en-us anyway mainly because it will come in handy for Sharepoint

I modified my web.config file for the webdav site and now looks like this... (note the extra 0 to bump it up from 50 to 500MB)...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>
                <windowsAuthentication enabled="true" useKernelMode="true" />

Anyway, it seems I can now upload to the server but still having that download issue.
is the same tip as my http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900900 link so that was already done but this tip is not working on my Win 7 machine. Any other ideas?
