Limit the maximum number of ranges that can be added to the file in a BITS job

This policy setting limits the number of ranges that can be added to a file in a BITS job. By default, files in a BITS job are limited to 500 ranges per file. You can use
this setting to raise or lower the maximum number ranges per file.


If you enable this policy setting, BITS will limit the maximum number of ranges that can be added to a file to the specified number.


If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, BITS will limit ranges to 500 ranges per file.
