  • Hello,

    There is a hard limit of 500MB so the value must be less than 524288000 or you will get an error when saving the list as a template.

    Refer similar thread here:

    Hope this helps.

  • HI,

    This is the limitation of templates. You can not exceed this size. However if you want to copy the entire document library somewhere else in your application you can follow these steps:

    1. Save the document library as a template without data.

    2. use this template to create the one in destination site. If your destination site is in the same site collection you can use the site manager to copy the data in a very simple way. If it is on any other site collection use explorer view to copy down data.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,
