Files over 90MB in size fail to upload


Firstly, DIFS is a fantastic tool! This is the second client I've used this tool for to upload their documents to SharePoint Online.

What I've noticed this time round is large documents over 90MB fail to upload using DIFS. I can drag and drop them from Internet Explorer and it uploads them fine so the file is fine.

I think maybe it has to do with a 'timeout' setting.....?
The error I get from DIFS is "The request was aborted: The request was canceled"

This page here: http://sharepointfieldnotes.blogspot.co.nz/2014/07/uploading-large-documents-into.html mentions something about "set the time out on the HttpWebRequest to about 10 minutes because large files will exceed the default time out of 100 seconds"

Upload process improved. Tested successfully with 300Mb file. Did not test with larger but did not see failures at this kind of size.

DIFS Version 2.0 has RequestTimeOut on the context object turned off so larger files should upload. That said it would be interesting to here of peoples experience with large file uploads.
