UNC Paths

  Asked By: Sanchay    Date: Sep 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2144

Has anyone had a problem using UNC paths to transfer documents from
SharePoint to client and vice versa? We are having a problem with the
transfer choking on large file sizes 49Meg+.

I can open the file and then save off to the desktop.

default filesize limit is 50mb :) you can change that in central administration

easy eh?

In this case the default file  size limit is 200mb. Besides, I can
put it into the document library via the browser and pull it out.
it's when i use the UNC in explorer to pull it out that it chokes at
49 meg

I have had the same problem  and never been able to get it to work. We
were planning on replicating some documents  out of our SharePoint server
to our website but the UNC idea stopped us when we hit the 50 MB mark.

I believe it is a known issue in the Office Web Services Client.

Interestingly enough, the customer is using an application that
grabs the file  from the file system and uses the UNC address to
insert it into the document library.

Here’s the information you need … http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900900/

A note that UNC isn’t really supported. The WebClient service in Windows XP is converting it into a WebDAV call for you on the fly.

I needed the UNC option to work at least temporarily.

Is it possible to map a drive letter rather than use UNC? I think that
may be the problem.

Also, are you using multiple file  upload, the document library's Web
Explorer, or Windows Explorer?
