Having large filings checked by and sent off immediately after this

  • The check process of large files (containing more than 10 MB) may require a very long time. If you divide the files into smaller parts, or if you compress or zip them, you can speed up the check. The background check within handles large files. It works without any supervision and lets you take care of other things. Later, you will receive the check results by e-mail.

Compression of large files

  • There's no need to zip any files that are smaller than 10MB in size, because you can freely send them as they are in their .txt format.
  • At present, works best with Windows-zipped files.
  • It does not matter what software program you use for compressing the files as long as the file type is .zip.
  • Zip files must not be password protected.
  • Zip files must not have sub-directories.
