Description

Internally found, possible reported by customers. 

If an error occurred more 3 times while downloading or inserting a sharepoint the same document the processor would orphan the thread and leave it in a state of constantly checking its status. The fix was to take out the retry mechanism since it will retry the next time the job is run.
