Uploading large number of files to SS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to upload a large number of files onto a SharePoint site and I'm running into a number of issues with it. I have a group of users who for the past few years have stored some data on an external harddrive. They now need to be able to access it publically so we decided to create a new site on our SP server and upload all of the documents.

    My main problem has been that when I open the site in Explorer view and then drag and drop folders I get an error saying I am out of space and I need xx.x additional GB to complete this action. I am using SharePoint Server with Standard Edition SQL. Is there a setting that I'm missing that's restricting the size of my site or database?

    Does anyone have a suggestion on a better to upload these files instead of using Explorer view?
