Indexing files larger than 16 MB in SharePoint 2010

Posted By: Ayman M El-Hattab     Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Tonight, I came across an interesting blog post by Fellow MVP, Todd Klidnt in which he explains how to work around the 16 MB limitation for file indexing in SharePoint 2010 using PowerShell. "As with previous versions of SharePoint, SharePoint 2010 will not index the contents of files larger than 16 MB. There are a couple of reasons for this such as network usage pulling large files across and the time it takes to break them apart". Click here to continue to the post.

Problem Saving Files to A Sharepoint 2010 Site from Office 2010: Saves locally by default rather tha

Hi we are starting to use sharepoint 2010 / word 2010 and have found an interesting bug/problem. Sometimes when a user tries to save a file (by clicking on the save button in the quick access toolbar for word 2010) the save dialog comes up with the users local "Documents" folder as the path (not the correct sharepoint path where the document should be saved).  (I should say that we are creating the file from sharepoint by using a toolbar on the document library, with the new button)  We are using a content type and a template attached to the document library when we create the file.  This is really annoying because the user might not notice that the document is saving locally and not to sharepoint.  I have found a strange workaround which involves clicking the [File] tab on the ribbon in word 2010, then clicking "Save and Send" and then clicking the save button again.  At this point word 2010 seems to "remember" that it is trying to save document to sharepoint and shows the sharepoint document library. This is a real nuisance which could lead to documents being lost/misfiled if people don't realize that this is happening.  Can anyone help me? Thanks Kevin krd

Sharepoint 2010 files

Once I upload a picture or document into sharepoint; where are the files stored?

how do you package files with a feature in sharepoint 2010?

In my old sp2007 project, I would create a folder that would contain my feature, when it got deployed, any files would also be deployed along with them, so I could use them during feature activation later on (config xml files). How can I also deploy an xml file in 2010 along with my feature?nonam

RBS Maintainer not cleanup files in file system (SharePoint 2010)

Here's my environment:   Server #1: SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, RBS enabled Server #2: SharePoint Foundation 2010, RBS installed I setup RBS according to this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663474.aspx successfully. And I can see the files are storing in NTFS file system instead of database. And then I'm configuring RBS Maintainer according to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff943566.aspx . But it doesn't seem working as expected. I deleted the file from SharePoint Document Library and emptied recycle bin, even in site collection recycle bin. And even I delete the whole site collection. The RBS Maintainer doesn't delete the files in file system. I've updated the following rbs config on my content database for test: exec mssqlrbs.rbs_sp_set_config_value 'garbage_collection_time_window', 'time 00:00:00'; exec mssqlrbs.rbs_sp_set_config_value 'delete_scan_period ', 'time 00:00:00'; exec mssqlrbs.rbs_sp_set_config_value 'orphan_scan_period', 'time 00:00:00'; Maintainer output after I deleted the file, emptied end user recycle bin and site collection recycle bin : C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Remote Blob Storage 10.50\Maintainer>"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Remote Blob Storage 10.50\Maintainer\Microsoft.Data.SqlRemot eBlobs.Maintainer.exe" -Connect

OneNote 2010 indexing in SharePoint 2007?



I've followed the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946336 for enabling OneNote indexing in SharePoint 2007. I've found OneNote 2007 can be indexed (and searched), while OneNote 2010 cannot be indexed. OneNote 2010 content throws the error...

The filtering process could not be initialized. Verify that the file extension is a known type and is correct.

Even though both OneNote 2007 & 2010 use the same ".one" extension.

Is it true that OneNote 2010 cannot be indexed in SharePoint 2007? Is there any workarounds to this issue?


Sharepoint 2010 "Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have instal


This may be a DNS question.

New SP 2010 install, single server lab environment.
I can create and access site collections under the first web application SP2010 (Sharepoint 80, http://sp2010)

I have created another web application, different database, different port (777), and given it a different URL (test.otherdomain.com:777)
I have created a corresponging site collection (default team site).
Opened port 777 TCP incoming and outgoing in the windows firewall
Created a host (A record) in my DNS test.otherdomain.com (IP of the sharepoint server which is really called SP2010.mydomain.com)

nslookup returns the correct IP address, but when I type test.otherdomain.com:777 into a browser window I get
"Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed" both from another machine on the network and on the Sharepoint server.



Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint 2010 still using .pst files?


The Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint Server 2007 uses a .pst file to store content that is visible in Outlook. This has caused issues in the past with a client's enterprise policy of preventing use of .pst files on desktops. This particular client has an application that periodically checks for .pst files and deletes them, which breaks the Connect to Outlook feature for them.

Does SharePoint 2010 use the same functionality to Connect to Outlook, or something different?

SharePoint 2010 Date Column Not Indexing (or not searchable)


I have a 2010 Record Center.  Indexing and search functions seem to be working.  However dates do not appear in search results.  The column is marked for indexing.  Crawling is working and I do get other text type results.  I have tried switching the column to Date & Time in the detailed column settings.  With or withouth the time, it does not come up. 

There is an interesting twist.  On SOME, the search returns the AllItems.aspx PAGE (not the documents) with the date highlighted in the result item description.

SharePoint 2010 Incoming Email Unique Files are Not Created.


SharePoint 2010 Incoming Email Unique Files are Not Created. 

Description: In SharePoint 2010, when the document library is configured to receive incoming emails, the email attachments sent to document library should be saved as files. When files with same names received, the files should be saved with unique names.

Bug: The files with same names are dropped by SharePoint timer services. If the file with the name already exists in the document library, the newer file will not be saved.

Reason: In the SharePoint log, there is an error about "AddUniqueFile failed to create a file or folder. Filename: Dell Order 001.pdf Errorcode: -2130575305"

Checking the errorcode -2130575305, it is about "saveconflict", ErrorCode=-2130575305.

Error saving Office 2010 files opened from SharePoint Server 2007


I have recently started testing Office 2010 and have found only 1 major issue - I cannot save any Office 2010 files opened from a SharePoint Server 2007 location.  Upon save I receive an error message saying "Upload Failed. This file wan not uploaded because the specified path was not found on the server." and the file is captured in the Microsoft Upload Center.  Using the Upload Center action 'Open Web Site' opens the site without problem; however, a all subsequent resolve actions fail.  Any ideas?

Sharepoint 2010 WSP Deployment problem. Can't deploy new files.


We have found a problem with our deployment to a production server that runs Sharepoint 2010 Publishing Site Collection.

We are deploying WSP packaged from Visual Studio to Sharepoint Management Shell. It has worked like a charm in the past. We added a custom masterpage, css files, images and later we successfully added custom page layouts.

I also have SP running locally on my computer and everything works fine with no problem adding new files via deploying Feature. I can add them neatly into a document library or even create new folders from the Elements file.

However the problem arise when I deploy my WSP to the production server. I want to add a few JS files and a XSL file to the Style Library but the files won't get added to the document library. The deployment process goes smooth though with no errors and when I check my feature in Sharepoint Hive, the new files are there on the physical drive! However they won't get added to the virtual Document Library.

I can update existing files like the masterpage and CSS files so the feature that is deployed is working.

My guess is that either it has to do with permission problems or some bug in my code. But I did exactly as we have done before when deploying.

This is how my Elements.xml file looks like:


SharePoint 2010 Master page feature stapling - not sure where to put files


I have successfully added a branding feature to my 2010 environment that activates on install. Just as expected, it does not work for subsite creation. I have seen a number of articles/blog posts on how to create a feature stapler for SP2007. However, I am having a hard time finding a working solution for SP2010 using VS2010.

I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction on:

1. In my project I have a branding feature, this contains the EventReceiver that applies the change. Can I have a second feature here that does the stapling or does it need to be in a completely seperate project?

2. Everything I read points to two files feature.xml and elements.xml, are both of those supposed to be under Features in Solution Explorer or are they located somewhere else or do they need to be create. If they need to be created, where do they belong?

3. In the EventReceiver.cs file there is a GUID that was automatically generated. Is this the GUID referenced in the feature.xml?

Hopefully with these questions answered I can move forward and find a solution to getting the stapler working.
