What is the maximum size of the SyncState RRS feed

  • Question

  • When using SyncFolderItems we store the syncState in a database.  I have not found any documentation on whether there is a maximum size for the syncState.  My experience until now had suggested 512.  I just discovered a syncState of 517 characters which blows that theory out of the water.

    Does anyone know how large the syncState can get?

  • The SyncState is generated by an alogorthm that isn't documented anywhere so that's why they consider it opaque . So as a generally rule you might want to treat it as a blob of data rather then something that has constraints.


    PS If Microsoft where willing to document how this is created and what it contains then you could easly tell how big it could get.
