    No, mate. That was the problem with Noel's.
    Tried every ,pdf compression I could and the smallest readable I managed was 16mb - still over our hosting sizes.

    As I recall the Movecon site had the History split into 3 or 4 separate parts. Would that solve the file size issue?

    Is that the Xenforo limit in the 'Attachments' section (under 'Options' in the Admin Control Panel), or the unalterable hard-limit set by the server configuration (it's mentioned in the same place)?

    If it's the Xenforo limit, you can increase it up to whatever is necessary to get the large file uploaded, and then reduce it back down to normal to stop anybody doing anything similar in future. I don't think that the limit is retrospectively applied to files you've already uploaded.

    If it's the server side, then it's beyond my limited understanding, but there may be an answer here:

    Aware of that, Charley, but have already taken the Michael a bit with our. Pdf & image limits.
    It's not so much the uploading, more the potential download pressure on a system (that I don't pay the bills on) of over-large files.

    I suspect a full pro version of acrobat might be able to compress it to a sensible size, but I no longer know anyone with a copy.

    What are the practicalities and legalities of a WW2Talk Dropbox or similar account?

    Not a problem, really.
    The forum email address will have a free 15gb Google Drive associated & lying fallow, powered by their mighty engines.
    Moderately tempting to make another open drive account specifically for bigger files, as it crops up from time to time.
