    If you upload a big file (e.g. 5ß MB zip archive), as soon as the file is finished uploading, you'll get logged out. If you log in again, the zip is not uploaded.

    Hi Christian,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    This is a known issue since IIS limits the upload file size to 30MB (for IIS7). The workaround is to modify the web.config of your Sitefinity application and add the following:

    <location path="Sitefinity/Services/Dam">
         <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="6048000" requestLengthDiskThreshold="204800" executionTimeout="7200" maxUrlLength="102400" maxQueryStringLength="102400" requestValidationType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Claims.CustomRequestValidator, Telerik.Sitefinity" />
             <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648" />

    However, the logout behavior is incorrect and this will be fixed with the upload large files story in of the future versions of Sitefinity Desktop Application.
