Bluetooth File Transfer has a File Limit?


Whenever I want to trabsfer any file via Bluetooth, I Right Click on the Bluetooth icon in the notification area and select "Receive a File"

Then I send a file from my Bluetooth enabled mobile.

Small files(less then 300 KB) are transferred but for larger files (above approx. 300KB) it says that:

"Windows was Unable to transfer some files.

The Transfer was cancelled by the Bluetooth Device or the Bluetooth Enabled Computer."


So does Bluetooth File Transfer have a File Size Limit in Windows 7, because On Windows XP, there were no such issues.

Please Help...
