We want to transfer large files to Anchor (our secure file system from Axient) and want to know if the web browsers have a limit on file sizes?

We have a need to transfer last file 15gbs or so.  Is there a limitation on Google or Mozilla on how large a file can be?  We use Anchor, a secure file system. Thanks

There's no file size limit in any browser.

More likely your Web server may time out.

For transferring big files, HTTPS is a poor choice, unless every byte of every file changes between every transfer.

Better to use rsync, which will only transfer new files or the small window of file changes which might occur in any file which is updated.
