I have a Picture Library having some pictures in it. Now, I want to move it to some other site. For that I was trying to create a template (with content) for this picture library. But it error-ed out saying

'The list is too large to save as a template. The size of a template cannot exceed 52428800 bytes.'.

How can I increase the maximum size of a list templates in SharePoint 2010 ?


Did you try:

stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname max-template-document-size -propertyvalue 100000000

That's for 100 MB limit.

  • Do we have some option for this via Central Administration. I hate running commands :)

You can also backup the library and restore it at a different location. See granular backup and restore.

There is also a codeplex tool to help you. Content Deployment Wizard
