I am having a similar problem.  Great functionality otherwise!

Back again,
the upload thing is sorted I think!  it coincided with something else I was doing, it is linked to write permissions on the folder(s).  I got my host to create a uploads folder with write permissions, and then have allowed my users to manage data files from there.  The largest fileI have uploaded so far is about 14mb (not sure if that is large or not!).  I think you also need to watch out for script timeouts on the server for very big files.

I can not upload even after giving full control to the folder.

I am getting same error for large file more than few KB.

I had the same problem,
I can upload small files +/- 1mb
I cant upload big files +/- 100mb

IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 has a file named metabase.xml which resides in the folder C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv . By default, this file has this entry: 
AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed = "204800" 

This limits upload size to 204,800 bytes. You can change that to a large value (such as 2000000000 for 2 gigabytes) to allow your Windows 2003 server to accept large uploads.
