Office 2010, SharePoint 2010 multiple file upload randomly fails with large files

Issue:

Office 2010 / SharePoint 2010 when uploading multiple documents, large files will sometimes randomly fail. (114012011114004)

Cause:

This is a design limitation of the feature and limitations with 32 bit processes.  As memory get allocated by the .NET runtime if a large enough block is not found an out of memory exception is generated and the file upload fails.  The level of memory fragmentation at any given time is random.

Workaround:

Use single file upload or upgrade to both Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 and use the new "Drag and Drop Upload".

Comments
  • One remark on the drag and drop option; beware that metadata gets lost in the process. Metadata is necessary for making all content searchable so you could better use a tool like the Office 365 Bulk uploader on http://www.office365experts.be/en/products/office-365-bulk-uploader

  • Is there any solution for this issue?
