By default Archive Explorer displays preview of an item which is less than 512KB in size. In the reading pane for

a large size item, Archive Exporer displays message "This document is too big to preview, please open it instead"  

 

To overcome this limitation create an ANSI webapp.ini (case sensitive) in the installation directory of EV (X:\Program Files\Enterprise vault\)

Add below in the webapp.ini file and restart EnterpriseVaultAppPool

 

MaxPreviewSize=1024
 
Above setting will display preview of items which are <=1MB in size.
 
 
 
Note: Do not set larger value for MaxPreviewSize as it will put load on the EV storage server and performance will be hampered.
