Becoming concerned about how fast a versioned file is growing.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Good day,

I have an 8 MB .mpp file being shared by 15 or 20 people that periodically bumps up in size (as viewed in the SharePoint 2010 version history list) by ~4 MB.  There are currently 83 versions; a base, 3 majors, and the rest are minor versions. 

The first time it happened the person editing the file reported no bulk additions, only edits were to dates already in the plan.  Response time between task double click and task information window appearing was about a minute.  At end of that edit session size grew from 13.3 MB to 18 MB.

The bump up happened again today (two weeks later) when a user did some block moves inside the file, he says no new content copied in, but did manually create some new tasks.  The size in the version history is shown to be 25.5 MB, up from 20.8 MB. 

I'm becoming a little concerned.  This is environment is behind a corporate firewall so while it's possible that there is a virus at work here, I'd be surprised.

Any ideas what might be causing this docyument to grow like that?  Is there an "Accept Revisions" function that will rebaseline the file and keep this from getting even larger?

Why is my ErrorLog growing so fast?

I'm using SqlServer Express on a hosted Win2010 server.    An ErrorLog file in MSSQL/Log keeps growing at 10 gig per week, and I Have no idea why this is happening.  I use SqlServer in other environments, and the ErrorLog files don't seem to grow at all.

SSAS error log file size growing




We have a SSAS server 2005 running on a 64 bit server.

This server generates a error log file under D:\MSSQL\MSSQL.2\OLAP\Log\Error_Log.Log

This file is growing enormously. its current size is around 112 GB which is 5 times the size of the cube itself.

Is there any way we can control the size of this file by setting any max size property in the SSAS server.

any help would be highly appreciated.

File Splitter in .Net

I love to do utility programs in .Net. And this is one of them. As I was playing with JSplit (a free file splitter program), I wondered if I could do it in .Net. The framework supports file operations like reading files in bytes and creating them. It is indeed easy to do file operations in .Net Basics on File operations

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

SmtpClient and Locked File Attachments

Got a note a couple of days ago from a client using one of my generic routines that wraps SmtpClient. Apparently whenever a file has been attached to a message and emailed with SmtpClient the file remains locked after the message has been sent. Oddly this particular issue hasn't cropped up before for me although these routines are in use in a number of applications I've built.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection

Multi File Upload Using JQuery!

Import XML File to SQL Table

Here is a brief example of importing an XML file into SQL Server table. This is accomplished by using the BULK option of OPENROWSET to load the file, and then utilizing the XQuery capabilities of SQL Server to parse the XML to normalized table format. This example requires SQL server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.

First, the following XML is saved to XML file C:\Products.xml.

Xml File Methods and Properties

Method and Properties of XmlTextWriter class:
The XmlWriter class is a base class that outputs an XML data structure. It has methods to sequentially write XML elements in a proper hierarchy to create an XML file or other types of output streams. The System.Xml namespace provides support for the XmlWriter. It must be imported to the ASP.NET page with the directive

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>

The XmlTextWriter

XmlWriter is an abstract class that is implemented as an extended XMLTextWriter class. The XmlTextWriter writes a sequence of XML nodes one element at a time. Output can be written to an XML file, although other streams of output data can be produced. It can create a new file or overwrite an existing file. Its non-cached writing techniques provides very fast generation of an output stream.

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

scripts file not found on server - 404


Fiddler is showing a 404 error when my published web application runs. the jquery.js file in
/scripts is highlighted in red by fiddler as not found. ( IIS log also shows the 404 error ).
I run the web app from visual studio, on local host - no problems. The publish is successful.
All the files are in the scripts folder of the web app on the server.

In the site.master I have:
<script src="../../Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Visual studio does not complain about this. ( which indicates the file is found. )

Oddly, when I fully qualify the path, VS says file not found, but after I publish and run, fiddler
shows the jquery file being found and sent to the browser.
<script src="/MvcApplication1/Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

when the <script> path is "../../Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js", the fiddler error is
404: /Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js .

when the <script> path is "/MvcApplication1/Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js", fiddler shows the file
being sent to the browser from that /MvcApplication1/Scripts path.
