Subject Re: [fielupload] how much big size file can be handled?
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2006 15:15:41 GMT
What is the OS and server you are running?  I know that IIS has a limit, 
I think it's 2GB, for uploading files.  I'm of the opinion that you 
shouldn't be using a web based fileupload for files that large, you 
should use some more robust file transfer protocol, like FTP, SFTP, SCP 
or USPS.
