Large File Uploads

When uploading files through the web client, GreenAnt Nest will accept large files up to 500MB. However, uploading large files from the web may fail if the file takes too long to upload or if your internet connection drops out.

We highly recommend using a Desktop Sync Client for large file uploads.

There are three factors that define the largest file size that you may use:

  1. your local file system file size limit
  2. the GreenAnt Nest file size limit (effectively unlimited: 8 exabytes ≅ 8 million terabytes)
  3. the timeout limit of the file transfer medium
    • using WebDAV or the Desktop Client you should be able to transfer very large files (4GB and larger)
    • with PHP limits (via the web browser, the limit is 500MB)
