Would it be possible to upload huge files (10Gb+ movie files) with this tool?

Yes, I believe so. Though you should test it if that is your intention.

To upload large files, does it require increase in executiontimeout value in web.config file?

Although I'm not uploading files nearly as large as yours I have uploaded from some very low-bandwidth internet connections without problems. Although I may have only been uploading 100MB some of the uploads were taking 15 minutes due to a less than optimal wifi-piggyback. I did not need to change the executiontimeout but I do have my chunk size set relatively small (1MB+1byte). I set it this small to show the user a progress of 1MB per chunk uploaded (setting to exactly 1MB fell just short of that so I added 1 byte). I think the reason executiontimeout didn't need to be extended in my case is that each "chunk" is uploaded within the constraint and then you have another request to upload the next chunk thus allocation another execution and consequently another timeout allotment. Please le me know if your results vary.

Thanks,

Dave
