Problem: HOW TO INCREASE THE SAVE AS TEMPLATE SIZE LIMIT FROM DEFAULT 10 MB IN SHAREPOINT
The default size limit for the ‘Save as Template’ function in SharePoint is limited to 10MB. This however, can be changed easily using stsadm. To do so, go into sharepoint server, to 12 Hive bin folder (Drive:\\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\) and run the following command:
stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname max-template-document-size -propertyvalue 40000000. This command, exactly as entered above, will increase that limit to 40MB. If you would like to make this number higher, than just adjust the propertyvalue argument to the size that you need.
