Event Message:

The content index filter for file "filename" generated content data more than number times the file's size.

Source Event Log Event ID Event Type
Ci Application 4101 Warning


This event record indicates that the file listed did not get indexed because it generated too much data relative to the physical size of the file. The file will appear in the unfiltered list. This might be normal, or it might be caused by a problem in the filter being used.

User Action:

Verify that the filter is configured correctly. If the problem is not caused by the filter, you can increase the amount of data Indexing Service allows per document. To do this, see the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit for information about setting the MaxFilesizeMultiplier registry entry.
