Each single file upload is limited to 10 GB. However, the file upload experience could vary, depending on factors such as type and bandwidth of Internet connection eg. via LAN connection or via WiFi. 

If you have everything in one huge file, consider breaking it down into smaller sub-files. Consider data re-user download experience when you organise your data files. Organise them in a way that is easiest to understand and re-use.


There is no limit in terms of number of files per dataset.

When uploading a single zipped folder, there is a limit of 1,000 files per zipped folder.

If you encounter difficulty in uploading, send us your screen shots through the online form.
