Is it possible to change the download file size limit in Share?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have one question about the donwload file size limit in Share. 

When I download a large file, I got a message popup "The content is too large to download. The maximum download size is 2GB, the selected files are 2.9GB."

Is it possible to change this file size limit to 3GB or 4GB?

I think the message is catpured in the archive-and-download.js by below code

 archiveProgressSuccess: function ArchiveAndDownload_archiveProgressSuccess(response)
{

else if (response.json.status == "MAX_CONTENT_SIZE_EXCEEDED")
{
// The file size is too large to be zipped up:
Alfresco.util.PopupManager.displayPrompt(
{
text: this.msg("message.maxContentSizeExceeded", Alfresco.util.formatFileSize(response.json.done), Alfresco.util.formatFileSize(response.json.total, 2))
});
this.panel.hide();
}
},

And this function is get called by 

getArchivingProgress: function ArchiveAndDownload_getArchivingProgress(prevFailures)
{
if (this._currentArchiveNodeURL != null && this._currentArchiveNodeURL != "")
{
Alfresco.util.Ajax.jsonGet({
url: Alfresco.constants.PROXY_URI + "api/internal/downloads/" + this._currentArchiveNodeURL + "/status",
responseContentType : "application/json",
successCallback:
{
fn: this.archiveProgressSuccess,
scope: this
},
failureCallback:
{
fn: this.archiveProgressFailure,
scope: this
},
failureCount: prevFailures
});
}
},

OK. I fixed it by adding download.maxContentSize=-1 in the alfresco-global.properties

Have you tried to set the limit in alfresco-global.properties  (system.content.maximumFileSizeLimit) ?

Are you using the Download as Zip action?

I am afraid those functions are used by that action, and not for the normal download.

Yes, I set system.content.maximumFileSizeLimit=1000000 on my dev environment. However, it does not popup the message if I download file larger than 1MB. Seems this property does not take effect.

Ok... I can remember that I also had problems to import ACP files bigger than 2GB because there was a bug in the Java @zip lib (Alfreco 3/4). Maybe this is a hardcoded limit due to this old Java 6 (?) bug. Also some clients (windows WebDAV) have a default restriction of 2GB - maybe ‌ knows more.
