  • I was having an issue migrating a site with a huge upload file, over 400mb. My host had a limit of 128mb. After searching the web I couldn’t find a viable solution. Then I realized that I could break the upload folder into segments below 128mb by lowering the file size limit in the Updraft expert settings. I found I had to go well below the 128 limit to get the right file size for each chunk — 80mb finally worked. When I ran a manual backup, Updraft broke the upload folder into 4 chunks which were small enough to migrate the site on my new host.

    The upload widget in the ‘Existing Backups’ tab will break up uploads into small chunks, so that your hosting company’s limit does not come into play. What were the specific symptoms of the problem that you experienced?
