wss2.0 list question

  Asked By: Camille    Date: Oct 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1086

I have a user who has a list that has several years information in it.
It is over two gigs in size.

ISnt there a list size limit in 2.0?

ANy Idea how to migrate it to 3.0 without and keep the user
information, and apporved fields (date time) intact?
Any issue with using such a big list?

Site Collections can be many, many GBs. Two GB site collections are no
big deal. Lists aren't really limited by size, so much as limited by
the number of items in each view. The prevailing school of thought is
not to have more than 2000 items visible at a time. Unfortunately in
v2 you can't create folders in lists, which is the normal way around

Your list  should upgrade to WSS v3 just fine.
