Large File Support

Metalogix StoragePoint has a feature on General Settings that allows a custom upload interface to circumvent SharePoint upload limitations, if the Document Library is in the scope of an active StoragePoint profile. By dragging the file to the custom upload page the document is moved to the endpoint, and a link is placed in the document library to access that file. The link is an aspx file and will have a content type of ‘StoragePoint Document Link’. A user with the ability to edit document properties should not change this content type. The aspx file will not be subject to metadata requirements normally placed on a document content type; there can be list data fields, but changing the content type to get those fields is not supported.

Open or download requests can only be performed by clicking on the name of the document. The option to ‘download a copy’ is not supported. Office Web Applications are not supported. Previous versions can only be accessed from the Large File Details Download link.

The endpoint associated with large file uploads can use any of the supported storage adapters; it does not need to be a file system endpoint. So, there could be a size filter on the endpoint, to send large file uploads to the least expensive storage tier.

The file does not need to be large to use this interface, but files smaller than the upload limit for the web application (usually 50MB) will not generate a link, but will be externalized to the endpoint like a regular upload. For more information on how the Large File Uploads will operate, see Large File Upload.


Large files may be linked into a SharePoint Document Library. Please see User Experience for more information.

Please enable Large File Support if StoragePoint plans include a Librarian Configuration for a profile, and there are files larger than the web application upload threshold. Otherwise these larger files will be skipped during cataloging.

Use Breadcrumbs


Yes –During BLOB Migration, Metalogix StoragePoint will leave behind a small BLNK (BLOB Link) file that points to the new BLOB location. (default)

No – Metalogix StoragePoint will leave a full copy of the BLOB behind. This BLOB file will be removed by the Unused BLOB Cleanup Job once its BLOB Retention period has expired.

MinRole Topology

Allows StoragePoint timer jobs to process on servers that by default of SharePoint configuration, do not run timer service instances.

Checking the box shows the servers in the farm. Select the servers where StoragePoint timer services will be allowed to run. This will support Controller/Worker configurations.


After clicking Save on General Settings, it may be necessary to wait for or manually run the Farm Wide Maintenance Timer job, which will be found in SharePoint Timer Job Definitions. By default, Farm Wide Maintenance runs every hour.
