Save or publish WF ends with error: Value does not fall within the expected range

Jump to solution


on our on premise SharePoint 2010 server with Nintex Workflow 2010 I am suddenly not able to save or publish (even empty) WF over my library.
When I try to save new WF I got error:
Server was unable to process request. ---> Value does not fall within the expected range.

In SharePoint log I can then see more detailed message:
(http://intranet/_vti_bin/NintexWorkflow/Workflow.asmx😞 Nintex.Workflow.NWException: Value does not fall within the expected range. ---> System.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range.

--- End of inner exception stack trace --- (Build:2230)


All other libraries and lists work ok.
On this specific library there is already another WF which was working so far, but during last editing I made a mistake and all new instances of WF failed (one step was to create item in another list, but with empty instead of valid number which cause error). I tried to correct it, but Im not able to save new version of WF as well (with the same error).

Do you have any tips what should I focus on?

Well, I finally found out, that its caused by too many (> 5k) files in my library!

More specific error description should help, Microsoft!! 😕

Seems, that I will have to use some folders in it...
