For Docuements like PDFs and word documents, we are Indexing the Attachements as well.

The File Size is: 8.49MB

Is there any upper limit of the file size for Indexing ?
what is the maximum amount of time that is alloted to Index a file?

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for the Reply.

We are using the licensed version of the Find Service.

We do used the developer licenses for our development instances, there we never experienced this problem.

In test server we are seeing this problem.

Any more guesses on this?

50MB is the limit that I know about when calling the Index() method.
