Crawling Really Big Files

  Asked By: Gregory    Date: Mar 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 1168

Does anyone know how to increase the file size limit in SharePoint 2007
that large files can be indexed?

In SPS2003 it was a registry setting on the index server, but I am not
where to place it with MOSS.

We need to crawl a web site with a link to a 17.9MB powerpoint file.
crawl error log says that the powerpoint file is too large to index.

In SPS2003, it was a combination of MaxDownloadSize(x)MaxGrowFactor, but
I can't seem to find where these are defined on a MOSS indexer, or what
the new keys might be if they exist.

Probably not telling you anything you didn't know Daniel, just noting
for others



and this for metrics on changes to the values, etc:


I know it doesn't help with your question of how to change this for
MOSS, but if I figure it out, I'll definitely reply back

According to Alexey Smirnov at
at-moss-can-crawl/, you need to create the keys.

I'm not sure how, but our MOSS2007 index  server is indexing 17 MB and
larger documents successfully without either of these registry  keys set.
Looks like we (or one of our consultants) found another way and didn't
document it. Any ideas?
