While try to upload a file (any size) on any SharePoint 2003 document library, the browser is showing an error :
Form Validation Error
Please correct the information you provided by following these steps, then submit the information again:
Web server is busy. Please try again.

The sites are working fine. This issue occurs while uploading only.

DB properties show:
Space allocated for Data files= 3 MB
Space allocated for Transaction Log= 200MB.

  • Have you tried an IIS reset ?

  • Check the available disk space on the DB server. Jul 3 '13 at 20:35
  • @TempaC : Yes, done that too. But still getting the error. Jul 4 '13 at 1:38

Looks like your content database is full. This will show in the logs.

If not it will be one of the following:

  • Site Collection Quota has been reached
  • File type is disallowed
  • SQL Server database size maximum reached
  • SQL Server out of memory - restart server and plan an upgrade
  • Thanks for the help. I checked all the conditions, but the issue still persist - 1. Site Colln quota: More than 200 MB space left. 2. File type disallowed : No 3. SQL Server Database max size reached: No. Jun 28 '13 at 5:44
  • Are you using SQL Server Express? It has another restriction of 2GB per database

    Do you have any additional information from the logs? (SP/SQL/IIS logs) Has there been any recent database alterations? Have you tried restarting the servers?
