Uploading Large Files Using FTP

Recommended Posts

I need to upload several big files onto some webspace, so I'm using FTP.

 

Unfortunately, the files (videos) are between 100MB and 200MB, and there's about 20 of them.

 

Is there any way I can split the files and have them 'join' on the server? Because I'm trying to upload them but typically it uploads about 50% of it then it fails.

 

Any solutions to this problem would be appreciated!

I think the answer to the question is no you can't split and then reassemble at the remote end, regardless of the method used to split. Most decent FTP sites let you resume failed uploads, what client are you using?

Yeah, that's what I meant.

 

I was using SmartFTP but that kept failing, and wouldn't let me resume an upload.

 

Ended up downloading Filezilla, and it uploads the large files successfully every time now!
