Files too large to attach?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Recently, when I try to attach a large file to a posting, I get a warning that it is too large, "Only allowed to upload 3.13MB". I see others who have larger sized attachments. Is this due to the number of my previously attached files that is reducing my attachment amount? I can see in my PTE's  'My Attachments' that it shows all of my previous uploads.

My question is, if I delete any of these uploads listed in 'My Attachments', will my upload allowance increase? But will it then delete the uploaded file and the entire posting too?

Can you point to an upload which is greater than 3.13mb?

Sure...I have made many video screengrabs for Igor to show problems where the video file exceed 3.13MB. I have had to use WeTransfer or Firefoxsend to get it to him. My recent posting regarding the video stop motion question was 4.25Mb, 59 seconds, and had to use Firefoxsend and post the link.

So are you saying 3.13 Mb is the max for everyone?

Gary, 

you said you see others where the attachment is larger. Can you point to one?

Dave, Maybe I am wrong, but here is one that I think was a 7.96Mb attachment and the second one is 22.17Mb attachment. If I remember right, weren't these 'attachments'?

Both of those posts were from 2017 - there have been Forum updates since then and it is possible that one of the changes was a restriction on the size of an upload. I cannot get anything above 3Mb to upload in a single file.

Gary,

I set this limit to simplify maintenance of the forum and backups.

Please use Send Firefox or WeTransfer for larger files.

Igor... Ok, I just didn't know if that was a set limit for everyone or if I had just use up some portion of a higher limit, since I had be able to upload larger files before.

Thanks... Gary
