Guys, I need to have this functionality to upload files and mails by drag and drop, now sharepoint allows it by having that folderview in IFrame which takes the dropped item, but this does not allow files with spcial characters due to http URL related issue. How can I customize or program this to allow files with special chars in name, if not possible then how can I rename before the drop is over ? thanks, ram

Drag and drop to windows explorer of SharePoint site leads to 0KB file


I believe this issue got by so many people already.

We have a sharepoint site running on HTTPS protocol. There are some scenarios we get multiple documents from customers and need to move them to SharePoint to share them across organization. For this, what we are doing is, we are opening the library and from Actions menu -> Open in Windows Explorer.

The windows explorer is opening fine and when we tried to move the files from local system to windows explorer of the SharePoint site, it is failing to copy data and showing 0KB moved. And at the windows taskbar it is giving notification like "Got network delayed write fail message." when we are doing this on XP. On any other OS, there is no notification and not moving the file.

We are not able to understand the problem. Why it is not able to move, everytime it is copying 0KB.

We can do using upload multiple files feature, but we have to go back and forth between folders and it will slow down the process.

Please help me out, why it is happening... It is not network issue at all for sure.

SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model upload size limit



for the client object model i found 2 methods for uploading files:

  • Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.SaveBinaryDirect
  • Mircrosoft.SharePoint.Client.FileCollection.Add

The 1st methods use a stream and the 2nd use a byte-array as parameter. This morning i noticed that with the Add-Method of the FileCollection-Class I only can upload files which are smaller than 3 MB. With larger files I get always the exception (400 - Bad request).

The SaveBinaryDirect-Method seem to have no upload size limit. I can upload files which are 50 MB large. Unfortunatley it gives me no return value, but i like to get an object with id/guid for later operations (update/delete).

Is it possile to change the upload size limit for the add-method?

Thanks for help!
