Default is 4mb but you can out an entry in your web.config to change the size, max possible is 2gb:

To change this size limit, you have to make some changes in the application's web.config:

<system.web>
   <httpRuntime  maxRequestLength="2048" executionTimeout="360"/>
 </system.web>

maxRequestLength - Attribute limits the file upload size for ASP.NET application. This limit can be used to prevent denial of service attacks (DOS) caused by users posting large files to the server. The size specified is in kilobytes. As mentioned earlier, the default is "4096" (4 MB). Max value is "1048576" (1 GB) for .NET Framework 1.0/1.1 and "2097151" (2 GB) for .NET Framework 2.0.

executionTimeout - Attribute indicates the maximum number of seconds that a request is allowed to execute before being automatically shut down by the application. The executionTimeout value should always be longer than the amount of time that the upload process can take.
