I have been trying to upload 5 large PDF files into a new SharePoint site. That site is a sub-site of our main site. The files in question are already in the shared documents directory of the main site. So I know the files were uploaded at one time successfully. This was done prior to my taking over.
I'm fairly new to SharePoint but I know how to search the web for answers (or I thought I did)
Anyway, I've increased the max file size via the Central Admin console. I've edited the registry as one post suggested. I've edited the web.config file.
Everytime I try to use Windows Explorer view to move the file from the main site to the sub-site I get an error telling me "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\user\username\hold. Verify the item's location and try again."
By way of information I have been able to open each file in it's original location on the main site and do a save as to my user directory on my PC.
So it doesn't seem to matter whether the file is on my PC or in the library of the share documents folder of the main site it gives me the same error.
I've been working on this for two days now and just can't figure it out...HELP Please!
To explain, I need to move files from the main site to a new site in an effort to organize things and meet US Government compliance requirements to limit access. Please don't respond by telling me I can set the permissions on a file by file basis, I know that but my company has their own requirements and I have to do what they want not what I'd like to do. Thanks.
