FAQs


How do I tell if my file is done uploading?
Once the green progress bar has disappeared, your file has been successfully uploaded into the File Manager.


Is there a limit to the file size I can upload?

Files no larger than 100MB can be uploaded into the File Manager. 



Why did my file fail to upload?
If an image has failed to upload, a few different things may be happening:

  1. If your internet connection is loss while the image is still being uploaded, the upload process will fail.

  2. If the file name includes any special characters ( *, $, ( ), %, &, @ ) the image will fail to upload. Dashes ( - and _ ) are OK to use in the file name.
