In this post we will discuss how to resolve the error "the specified file is larger than the maximum supported file size" which comes when you try to upload file or video with size more than 50mb.
Also you can check out my previous posts on:
Full error message:
the specified file is larger than the maximum supported file size.
By default SharePoint sets Maximum Upload Size to 50MB, if it increases more than that then the above error will come.
We can increase this through Central Administration. Follow below steps:
- Open SharePoint 2010 central administration, then click on Manage web applications in the Application Management section as shown in the fig below:
- Then select the particular web application and then from Ribbon click on General Settings as shown in the fig below:
- Then from the Web Application General Settings navigate to the Maximum Upload Size section and there you can change the size according to the requirement. By default it sets to 50 MB. Change like shown in the fig below and click on OK.
Now the error should not come.
