Deep Dive Into the SharePoint Content Deployment and Migration API

Stefan Go├čner posted a great series of posts about the Content Migration API (formerly known as PRIME) for SharePoint (WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007). In just 5 post he explains everything about this API and where SharePoint uses it. It's an excellent start point for many SharePoint administrators and developers out there. I also refer to this post in my training's about SharePoint as well.

If you want some other great info about migration check Replication and High Availability from Joel Oleson.

    I am using the content migration API to import and export large video files (50-500 MB).

    I am getting following error when one of the larger files around 300 MB are being attached : "Insufficient memory to continue the execution of the program. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.AddOrUpdateItem"

    I have 2GB ram and x86 processor. This problem only occurs on 32 bit processors. Its working fine with x64 architecture.

    I am using an external blog storage API to store these large files.

    Please advise!!
