I am using sharepoint 2010. I have a document library. I have on my local machine 600 documents of tyoe .msg. These are email files. I try to upload all these 600 documents. But I see at the end there are only 400 documents uploaded. Is there some limit to upload multiple files?

    Are you getting any error after uploading 400 files.

100 items per bulk operation

The user interface allows a maximum of 100 items to be selected for bulk operations

to get around this issue, open the document library in explorer view and upload that way.

goto the list page -> on the right hand side of the list at the top select the views drop down items and change it from the current view to 'explorer view' , this will then popup an explorer window just like on desktop that you can copy from your local machine to that location (copy/cut -> past or drag drop from one window(source) to the other window(target))
