Workaround for Error “Database Too Large, Not Copying. Access Properties Skipped” when Scanning Access Databases using OMPM for Office 2010

Microsoft acknowledges of receiving several recent reports for the following errors when using OMPM for Office 2010 to scan Access databases:

  • Database too large, not copying. Access properties skipped.
  • Not logging Access properties for database.

Sebastien Roche, a Microsoft consultants discovered a workaround to fix this issue:

Modify the OMPM configuration file (offscan.ini) as follows:

Set MaxCopyFileSize=300 ; or a size larger than your largest database

If you set this parameter large enough, you may still receive a “timeout error.” In that case, you’ve to modify the values of the parameters RetryCount & RetryInterval as follows:


RetryCount=15 ;set this to the number of retries per file you would like before moving on

RetryInterval=1500 ;set this to the number of milliseconds to wait between retries.

The downside to this workaround is that OMPM scan performance is slow.
