When I try to perform a get on one of my branches, I get an error: "Error getting files: too many items in result. Please restrict your query". The repos has 66098 files in it.

I have tried from both UI and command line. Any ideas?

The Surround SCM server has a default value on the amount of files it can return at a time. This default value is set to 100,000 files. Since your repository has less than the default value of files the value was overwritten in the server configuration. You can find this setting in the registry:

Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Seapine Software\Surround SCM\SCM Server\MaxListWindowItems

Linux: /etc/spscm.conf will have a MaxListWindowItems setting

Either remove this setting or set it to a higher value and restart the Surround SCM server.
