Download files of size more than Gigabytes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are facing a problem which should have been overcome by most of the file shareing websites.
    We have a asp.net based website in which one of the webpage is used by the users to download a file from the server.
    File size would be as big as 1 GB.
    As per now, when the users starts to download the file, our webserver goes down due to lack of memory as server tries to load the whole file in  the RAM.
    Please let me know as what would be the best and actionable practices to achieve this.
    Kindly pour in with your comments.
    PS: ftp is not an option.
