Download problem: Too many items? Too many folders (two)?

Feb 19, 2014 at 4:37 PM
I have a list that I have been downloading successfully with recursion.

Until last night, I had only one folder in the library and a total of around 5,000 items, split between the folder and the ones not in a folder.

I am downloading about a dozen fields.

It works, it works, it works.

Yesterday a second folder was created and a few hundred items are in it.

Now my package fails with the 'Unspecified SharePoint Error. A possible reason might be you are trying to retrieve too many items.....'.

The batch size is unchanged (1000). Does anyone know why I now get this error?

(If I turn recursion off, the package works, but of course this isn't what I need....)
