    Ok, so..


    JotFrom is completely perfect for what I need. I've been searching for weeks for a solution to my problem and I have almost finally found it with JotForm. 

    Here's my issue:

    I provide a service in my business and I need my users to be able to upload files anywhere between 500mb - 1.5gb.

    Jotform allows me the ability to have my users fill out a form and attach their information to the file they are uploading to me. However, before I buy the paid service of JotForm I need to understand exactly what the large file limitations are.

    Also, my server doesn't allow me to upload anything bigger that 64MB from the limits of the php settings on the server.

    I was excited to be using dropbox with JotForm but after reading that the Dropbox API limits files to 300MB that put an end to that idea.

    I need my clients to be able to attach information to their files like they can with JotForm, but at the same time I need them to be able to upload large files.


    What are my options?

    You can check these details in our pricing page :

    In addition to it, we have a limit 1 GB per file. It's more than enough for any project :)

    But I have to state that, Jotform is not a file-hosting company. You can not share download links of your uploaded files, they will be only for you.

    Kindest Regards,

    Yeah, they are only for me. After they are uploaded, they are downloaded and deleted. 

    There will be times where I need more than 1GB. I deal with Music sessions files. Sometimes they can reach 3GB. 

    What I will be uploading back would be a couple .wav files.

    It's been a pain trying to find a solution for this. It seems like my only other option is to buy a dedicated server with my hosting company.

    Any other ideas?

    Dedicated server or VPS is the only way for you,

    I can suggest you some companies, what is your price range ?

    There is another option called Binfer. It has a Web Drop function with which you can receive files from your web site to any other computer (eg: you home office) that is running Binfer. It is different from FTP or dropbox like services. See their website for details. It would be interesting if it was integrated with jotform.
