Unable to make a full clone

I am trying to create a full clone from a large mercurial repository. In the middle of the clone process this fails and the server logs this error:

2015-05-05 07:13:23.379 [Thread-3746] WARN  sonia.scm.web.cgi.DefaultCGIExecutor - Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 2]<some file path>\.hg/store\00manifest.d: The system cannot find the file specified

The clone is then aborted.

If I clone to a few weeks older revision and then update to the current revision it works.

However I could not determine the revision this is dependent on.

Any ideas and help appreciated.

    Yes, scm manager runs on windows. Yes there are larger files in the repository. Approximatly 15 minutes, but its hard to be exact because this includes the rollback.

    This sounds like a timeout. Could you try to increase the maxidle time:

    To set the maxIdleTime, you have to edit your server-config.xml and add the timeout to the SelectChannelConnector:

    <Set name="maxIdleTime">1800000</Set>


    <Call name="addConnector">
        <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.nio.SelectChannelConnector">
          <Set name="host">
            <SystemProperty name="jetty.host" />
          <Set name="port">
            <SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8080" />
          <Set name="requestHeaderSize">32768</Set>
          <Set name="maxIdleTime">1800000</Set>

    Do you use https or plain http?
