Increase default CSV file size using Connector

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am creating a new data Source type - Custom File Export Data Source and when exporting to a specified file. The file is over 200k though and when exporting is being overwritten. I know I can create a "new file for every export" and increase file size within that option but I am using a workflow to pick up the exported file for something else so need the file name to be static. Is there a line I can add to the CoreSettings.config file to increase the default for Custom File Exports?

BL have confirmed that there is no option to increase the file size within the GUI. A workaround has been provided though which works!

1. Export your data source via right click as an XML

2. Open the file in a text editor

3. Improve the value of XML tags '<maxFileSize>200</maxFileSize>' and define the desired size in Kb. I don't recommend to define very huge values as it might cause performance problems :-)

4. Save the file

5. Remove the original data source from the SMP console and import modified data source via right click.

6. Now you should be able to export to a larger file.
