    Google drive gives you 5GBs for free, so you can upload files according to that space, but Jotform only allows you to upload 1GB as max size.

    So, if you want to upload files with a size higher than 1GB what you can do is to allow multiple uploading, so you will divide it in multiple pieces for 1GB or less each.

    Google Drive gives 5GB of space for free & if you don't get additional space, 10GB of upload will not complete.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your replies, however I believe there is a limit as to the size that can be pushed by a third party (Jotform), as I mentioned above, Dropbox limits are written in thier API. The reseaon I think this is I uploaded a 315MB file using Jotform, it showed up in my Jotform files with a download link, but was not (and still not) uploaded/synced to my Google drive. Other files I've tested have been smaller in size, 5MB to 70MB and have synced/uploaded to both Jotform and my Google drive, no problems. 

    By the way, Google now gives you 15GB free space.

    For Dropbox the limits are 

    Upload not more than  150 MB per upload

    Upload not more than 9 files

    For Gdrive, we know it depends on how much space you have. However, there might be a limit size per file in our API so I'll forward this concern to our developers

    Here's a link on Google drive file size limits:



    "Other files: Files that you upload but don’t convert to a Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides format can be up to 5 TB each."

    I uploaded an 88 GB file but I don't know how to download it. 5 TB uploads do not necessarily mean 5 TB downloads. I'm stuck,=.

    It sounds like you're uploading files directly to Google. Our system doesn't attempt to support 88GB. For questions with Google's service please see their support channels.

    Let us know if there's a specific issue with our system.
