maximum file size >1GB

Getting more and more client requests to save files larger than 1 GB.  Currently these files are saved out of ND, which becomes a hurdle for traveling attorneys who want access to everything in one place, online, without having to remote, VPN or Citrix into the office.  at least 2 GB, but 5 GB does happen on occasion.

I definitely agree with Gordon that we do need file uploads of more than 1gb. The reason being many times our litigation or arbitration attorneys have large  bundles to upload so the same can be accessed by Arbitrators and other court experts during the course of the trial. 

I myself took this issue up with senior NetDocuments management team.

Right now the ideal place we upload large files in Microsoft OneDrive which makes the entire idea of having documents in ONE PLACE be defeated.

NetDocuments, please take note of above.

Would be curious to hear how people are dealing with the upload/download speed issue.  Our users currently don't load anything over 100 MB due to speed and we have increased our bandwidth twice.  Any info would be appreciated.

RoxAnn, my users have the same difficulty upload big file to ND and I took this issue up at the highest level. Much to my amusement, they asked me to investigate my internal network for any bottlenecks. I'm 100% sure, it is not bandwidth issue as I'm having 30gb upload speed. I can upload a 1gb document to OneDrive before you can finish yawning. NetDocuments should investigate the issue internally.

Agree -- we have updated our internet speed, etc. and still don't recommend anything larger than 100 MB to upload.  We link larger files and/or folders with a link back to our internal network.
