MODIFY FILE failed. Size is greater than MAXSIZE.

Error Message:
Msg 5040, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
MODIFY FILE failed. Size is greater than MAXSIZE.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to modify a file and the specified MAXSIZE is less than the current size.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. The specified MAXSIZE must at least be equal or greater than the current size.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
ALTER DATABASE MyExample
MODIFY FILE
 (NAME = MyExample_Data,
  MAXSIZE = 2 MB)

Remarks:
In the above example we try to specify a MAXSIZE of 2 MB for the logical file MyExample_Data. Because this is less than the current size, the error is raised.
