In the Internet Explorer (IE) web browser, when a user uploads a file larger than 250 MB, IE will not automatically send you to the folder when the upload completes as it normally does for a smaller file. Instead, this is what happens when you upload a file over 250 MB in Internet Explorer.
- The progress bar completes and shows the “waiting for virus scan” message.
- The progress bar will remain on screen. You can close it as soon as it shows 100%.
- After approximately the same amount of time it took the progress bar to complete, the file will be fully uploaded.
- After enough time has passed to complete the upload, go back into the folder. Your document should appear.
In the FireFox web browser, the behavior on uploads up to 1 GB is usually the normal behavior for small uploads.
