    Do the values of MaxFileSize and MaxRequestLength have to match for RadUpload?

    Does the value set for MaxRequestLength supersede MaxFileSize to support uploading of large files?

    Also does anyone know where the temp files are stored upon upload? Some have said Windows\Temp\.  Are files just stored in the root of that or in a specific folder?  What permissions should it have?

    Hello Austin,

    In general the MaxRequestLength specifies the limit for the input stream, while the MaxFileSize property of the RadUpload control specifies the maximum size for each of the uploaded files (as described here). It is also important that teh MaxFileSize property is less or equal to the MaxRequestLength set in the web.config file as explained here.

    Considering your other question note that the RadUpload uploads files directly to the assigned folder as explained here in contrast to the RadAsyncUpload that stores the files in a temporary folder. I would also suggest that you refer to the following help topics for more detailed information:
