  • Hello,

    Are you running MOSS on server 2k8?  If so, you may need to edit the "web.config", specifically the "maxAllowedContentLength" property.  By default Microsoft sets the limit to 28Meg, which may be causing your error.  If this is the case, you should increase the ceiling to accomodate your needs.

    Good luck!
