FIX: Error when you insert a record into a FileTable or FILESTREAM in SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014

Applies to: SQL Server 2012 DeveloperSQL Server 2012 EnterpriseSQL Server 2012 Standard More


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a FileTable or FILESTREAM in Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014.
  • You have set the MAXSIZE of FILESTREAM data to UNLIMITED.
  • You insert a record into the FileTable when the FILESTREAM container size has reached 32 terabytes (TB).
In this scenario, the insert fails and you receive the following error:
error 1105 Could not allocate space for object '<object_name>' in database '<database >’ because the '<filestream_filegroup>' filegroup is full.


The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server.
After you apply the fix, when the FILESTREAM container MAXSIZE is set to UNLIMITED, it continues to grow until the disk is full.
