I am trying to attach a two-page Excel document to a posting. It's 149 KB. I get the message that my upload allocation limit has been exceeded. How large a file can I upload?
I've reset your space and you should be able to add that file now.
Note that non-paying members get very little attachment space, only 512 k. The system also gets confused when uploading more than to the limit. It's optimized to use Insert Images into messages instead of attaching files like yours.
You can recover space by removing old attachments - find old attachments via the tab on MyForums
Clicking on any link there takes you to the original message which can be edited to get the options to remove attachments.
let us know how it goes ...
Thanks. But did I exceed space limits with this, or was it just a glitch in the system?
149k wouldn't exceed the limit unless you already had some other attachments or tried before with a larger file. Check your attachment list to see if there are messages with attachments.
Yes, I had sent some attachments earlier. The limit is per day? All time? Something else?
The limit for is for the total you have attached to all messages at any one time. Removing old Attachments makes room for more, it's very limited.
Note that inserting images into messages has no such limit, it's only for attaching files as you describe.
I am again having upload limits even though my attachment doesn't exceed the space limits.
What I noticed occurring was that if I inadvertently exceed the space limitation without an attachment, the system not only refuses to attach it, it thereafter denies me permission to send attachments, even when I split them in two and both are below the limit.
Can this situation be fixed? I'd still like to post the attachments.
You do describe what happens when you exceed the limit. It's a known bug in the system.
I'll try resetting again.
Okay. I'll just have to double check my file size before I sent. Thanks.
