    I am trying to upload a 400 mb google ngram zip file using the file browser into the sandbox.

    I’m getting this error:

    The following error(s) occurred:
    timed out

    Is there a limit on the size we can import? What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Alex,

    As far as I know there isn’t a limit to the files you upload, only the space on the disk. if the file is 400MB when zipped how much space is it going to take when unzipped? On a new Sandbox there is just under 40GB of space in HDFS.

    Thanks,
    Ted.

    I apologize, my description of the problem is inaccurate.

    I actually was able to upload 100% of the zip file.

    However, right after uploading it, it gets stuck on the unzip:
    Uploading to: /user/hue
    The file will then be extracted in the path specified above.

    at this point it just errors out.

    are we not allowed to import large zip files?
