    Hi,
    We have a requirement to upload more than 50K images at once. The current functionality of RadAsyncUpload supports uploading around 3000 pictures at once. I tried to upload 8000 pictures in your online demo page, but the page got stuck for several minutes and after the page started responding, it didn't even start uploading. All the characters on the page were distorted as well. Do you suggest anything that can help us meet the requirement?

    Thanks,
    Sriram.

    Hello, Sriram.

    The RadAsyncUpload is developed with and tested against a fair number of files. That number is definitely below 50000 files at once.

    For numbers that high, there are technology better suited -- say FTP. Or at least in batches.

    I am not sure that there is anything we could do / advice you, since your case is not a common one.

    Ivan,
    Thanks for the reply. What is the maximum number of files the RadAsyncUpload can handle at a time so we can try batching?

    Thanks,
    Sriram.

    Hello, Sriram.

    I tried uploading various batches of files: 500, 1000, 5000.

    While all browsers handle fairly well 500 and 1000 files, 5000 proves to be challenging. It's still possible, but not recommended.

    And finally, as mentioned in my previous reply: 50000 are not to be transmitted across the wire; if possible use FTP or even better zip the files and transmit them.
