Q: I understand the file limit is 100 MB, can I upload multiple files totaling over 100 MB in a multi upload field if each individual file is under 100 MB? 

A: Yes, and bare in mind the more fields that are uploaded the longer it will take to upload. 


Q: Are there files limits for attachments in notifications?

A: Yes, files sent as attachments on notifications have a limit of 25 MB (10MB for clients hosted in EU). If a file size, or combination of files, exceeds 25MB, an "email could not be sent" error will be received.
 

Note - Keep in mind that the size of your file on disk or in memory may not be the same as the size of the file once it is attached, as files must be encoded as text to be sent. You can expect an increase in size of up to 30%.It is advisable to keep the file size under 20MB so that you won't face any error.
