How to receiving Uploads in Forms: Download more than 200 files / MB

    I have a Uploadformular who people can upload up to 3 files (images). I can easily download the files with the download functions and get a nice zip archive with the folders(named by ID) and the associated files for each submit. So far so good.

    What happens if I try to download more than the max 200 files/mb? Does it simply stops after the limit is reached, will it cut the rest? Or will it throw an error and don't work at all?

    I noticed that I can filter the registrations per date. So I figured this might be a work around with I can split the downloads into smaller chunks which don't exceed the limitations. 

    But since the filter smallest time period is a single day, what happens if I got more than 200 files/MB on one day (And this will most likely happen)?

    Can I still use the download option?
    This function is very handy for us, besides the massive amount of saved work(not to download/save each file individually), the automatic created folders which are identical with the Submit IDs are very important to associate the files later.

    So is there a way to use the function, when we exceed the limit (especially on a single day)?
    What would be the way to go?

    Thank you for your time and suggestions.

    PS: Is this upload functions still available in the new Formbuilder(V4)?

    Its allready answered in:

    You can select the files you need, and only download them. This solution works good enough.
