    I am trying to download a large file (150 MB) from the blob storage. File type is PDF. File is downloading properly. When i try to open i am getting a message

    "Failed to open the Document".  Do you guys thing that PDF file is corrupted?  or do i need to make any setting in Web.config  to allow large downloads? Please advise.

    How are you downloading the file from the blob storage?

    Try accessing it directly using http://???.blob.core.windows.net/containerName/filename.pdf

    If it is corrupted when downloaded from there then I would suspect the file.

    Try a different file or image and see how that works.

    I am accessing directly using the URL. The file is not corrupted though. It is a large file of more than 125MB. Do i need to make any settings change in the Web.Config  inorder to download the Large file? I am able to download 50MB files without any issue. Thanks for your help.
