When you upload a large file which is somewhat more 50 MB to a document library within a workspace in Sharepoint 2001 the upload fails and we see an error "An error occurred while processing your request. Please contact your system administrator for this server" .
We do have a limit that we hit when uploading large documents to Sharepoint 2001 Server via the browser or Portal UI. We are not going to try to increase product limits in SharePoint 2001. Big files should be uploaded through the shell for best performance. Recommended maximum document size is 50MB .
