Uploading archive files with multiple documents

When you upload an archive file, the system performs the following actions:

  1. Automatically unzips the file into a new folder with the same name as the uploaded archive file.

  2. Automatically deletes files that are not images or documents.

  3. Scans the files for viruses and deletes any infected files.

  4. Deletes the original archive file that was uploaded.


File size limitations

The maximum allowed file size for uploads is 25 MB. If a file exceeds the maximum upload size, a warning will be displayed:
