"The number of files doesn't appear to be an issue, only the final size of the UPLOAD.TGZ file.
Blue- Is it even remotely possible that UFT users are only allotted one (1) megabyte of storage space on the server, and that this is the problem?
Or is it possible that they are using an old DEC 64k computer with a Radio Shack tape recorder?
Or that they don't have the latest version of gunzip?
Or that they never heard of MSWindows and the latest version of Winzip, which will also handle tar (tape archive...)and gzip and MIME and UUencode and ?? maybe AOL on a PC?
p.s. Thanks for the heads up on gzip compression and tar archiving. Some of us never got close to a computer in our youth, except for a tour with our thermodynamics professor. And all he knew about was heat pumps to cool the vacuum tubes. :) -john-
