storage of .exe files and file size limits RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm closing this thread as it has become about sharepoint storage of executables and their size.  Please repost your question in the SharePoint 2007 or WSS3.0 forums (depending on which version of sharepoint you have).

  • Hi,

     

    What is your SharePoint server’s version?

     

    Do you want to upload .exe file to SharePoint site? If so, you need to change Central Administration > Operations > Blocked File Types. By default, .exe file is blocked.

     

    By default, the maximum size for uploading files is set to 50 MB. If you need to be able to upload larger files (such as when you use smigrate.exe to migrate a site between servers), you can change this setting to any value up to 2 GB (2047 MB).

     

    For more information about configuring file size limit in SharePoint server 2007, check out the following articles:
