Outlook Sync Limit: Why You Can't Download More Than 4GB at Once


This problem should only occur on the initial synchronization of a folder that is larger than 4 GB. If the folder size is initially lower than 4 GB but then grows to above 4 GB over time, you will not see this problem through normal folder synchronization. The status bar indicates the amount of data being currently synchronized to the folder, so for existing folders above 4 GB, the incremental changes will be relatively small in day-to-day use.




outlook only download 4gb at a time



When using this option, Outlook will download only the mail header and not the mail content.By using this option, we can eliminate the mail content that could cause the synchronization problem. We can use the mail header for getting information about the number of mail items, the size of each mail item, information about attachment size included in the mail item, etc.


Massive mailboxes will be a perpetual issue. There will always be outlier users that have 20, 50, 100gb mailboxes for no reason. I've had users that ran into the limit of "Outlook cannot have more than 100,000 messages in a single folder." multiple times. Then they'll complain that there's a limit that they can only MOVE 2,000 messages to another folder at a time.


I am adding my Outlook and Gmail account to mail app. Once added, it is starting to download all the mails from outlook and gmail servers from the beginning. It already downloaded almost 4GB data. I am trying to find the solution to stop this or at least limit the download.


The time it takes to upload or download a large amount of data to or from OneDrive depends on your internet connection speed, how close you are geographically to our servers, how much your internet service provider (ISP) lets you upload in a day, the speed of your computer, and other factors. Here are some tips for maximizing the transfer speed:


To test your connection speed, search the web for "bandwidth test." After you know your connection speed, search the web for "upload time calculator" or "download time calculator" to find out how long you can expect it to take to upload or download a specific amount of data.

After recreating the profile, it would work for a day or two and then get corrupted. The OST would go into .OST.corrupt state and deleting or renaming the file wouldn't do anything as it would complaint the OST is missing/corrupted and then ask to look for the file. If I rename the .corrupt back to .OST, it would reconvert it back to .corrupt and deleting the file would ask me where this file was. If I enter a new name, it would recreate the file and redownload the emails but it gets to a point where it shows .B byte remaining downloaded, restarting Outlook would then go back to reloading all the emails again (even thought it all been synced) showing Inbox (3.58GB remain) and not download any new emails unless outlook restarted which causes it to just download the new emails and nothing else until it restarted again.


The default settings for IMAP in eM Client is such that it only downloads the header until you open the message. You can change this to enable offline use, so the entire message body and attachments will be downloaded. You will find the setting in the IMAP tab for your account in Menu > Tools > Accounts.


WorkSpaces allows you to pay for usage based on monthly subscriptions or hourly meters. With the monthly subscription option, you pay a fixed monthly fee per virtual desktop for unlimited usage during the month. Unlimited usage pricing is ideal for workers who use the service as their primary desktop. With the hourly metering option, you pay a small, fixed monthly fee per virtual desktop to cover infrastructure and storage costs, and a low flat rate for each hour of usage during the month. Hourly metering is better suited for workers who only require part-time access to their virtual desktop. You can mix the monthly subscription and hourly metering options within your AWS account, and you can switch between these billing options at any time within a billing period. Use our Cost Optimizer tool to select the appropriate option for each type of worker. Visit the Amazon WorkSpaces FAQ for more information.

I was experiencing slowing of my download speed - dropped in half every 2 hours or so after a restart. Occasional problems with computer speed as well and when I checked Resource Monitor I would see CPU usage bumping 100%. A restart always fixed the problem. Running in Safe Mode eliminated the loss of download speed so I knew it wasn't a problem with hardware or my cable modem or wireless router. I explored a lot of possible issues but none resolved the problem so I reinstalled Win 7 on Friday, January 16. Download speed not only fixed but faster than it was before. It remains steady and doesn't decay so there was something wrong with the OS, etc.


The issue resolved when I upgraded to Win10 on that machine. At the same time a degrading download speed (with time) issue resolved. I cannot imagine how that all worked though I have discussed the idea with several IT folks I know and have gotten various suggestions.


I am also seeing my download speed slowly decline (drops roughly 50% every 2-3 hours after restart). This is the reason I finally resorted to the reinstallation of Win7. The problem was temporarily (a day or two) fixed by the reinstall. If I start in Safe Mode, download speed does not drop with time.


I have not been able to reproducibly create the high CPU usage problem by putting a heavy load on one application or another. However most often I have only Outlook, WORD, Excel, and IE 11 open at any given time. There does seem to be a dependence on which web sites I'm connected to w/IE 11 but even that is not reproducible.


The problem with your thought is that sometimes the system will run for hours with all applications open and experience no slowdown. And other times it will bog down within an hour. It would take literally days to determine if the problem actually was a software interaction issue and I would be without the functionality of Office 2010, IE 11, and/or Adobe reader during that time. These are essentially the only applications I run.


The biggest problems faced by those who want to send large files are that a dropped connection can abandon the transfer and a big file can take a long time to move. These risks are even greater for very large files. Therefore, you need to find a managed file transfer system that uses a multi-threaded system to break up files and send many segments simultaneously. These tools also provide a Pause and Resume option and transfer recovery for broken connections.","author":"@type":"Person","name":"Tim Keary","description":"Since 2017 Tim has been a full-time tech copywriter.
