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


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


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.


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

    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
