    Are 2+ GB file uploads possible using the Telerik upload control?

    Also, a timeline for implementing this (if not already) would be appreciated. With the advent of IIS7 and the currrent modern browsers there doesn't seem to be a good reason why this isn't possible.

    Hi Charles,

    Unfortunately the pure ASP.NET + JavaScript approach currently does not allow files larger than 2GB be uploaded from the browser. We are researching some other possibilities and I hope we will be able to provide a nice solution in a timely fashion.

    Is there any Telerik control that supports greater than 2 gig file uploads?

    Thanks!

    Hello Charles,

    I am happy to say that RadAsyncUpload allows for uploads larger than 2G via using chunks for the actual upload. This means that the file is split on many small pieces and then is assembled back on the server, effectively working around ASP.NET limitations. You may take a look at the async upload here.


    Kind regards,

    That's great!

    Are there any limits? 4 gig ... 6 gig ? Does it depend on the browser and whether Flash or Sliverlight are being used?

    Thanks!

    Hello Charles,

    In theory, the only limitation is the operation system limit of file size, however, to be honest, we haven't tested with files larger than 3GB. My guess is that there will be no problems even 6GB files.

    All the best,
