There are certain limits that your account may be subject to depending on if you're a trial account or a paid account, so be sure to review the information below for more information.  

Trial Account Limits

Trial accounts have a limit on certain file types that could be used to send malware. Examples include (zip, exe, bat, etc.). Likewise, there is a limit on the number of share links allowed to be created in a trial domain. These are precautionary to help prevent spammers from utilizing Egnyte to send malware. These limits are only applied to trials and are lifted immediately upon subscription.

Trial users on all plans are restricted to uploading 1GB of data via FTP and are limited to 20GB of total storage on their trial domain. These restrictions are lifted immediately upon subscription.

Paid Account Limits

Plan File Size Limits

Different plans are subject to different file size limits.

  • Platform Team plans: 100GB
  • Platform Business plan: 100GB
  • Platform Enterprise Lite: 100GB
  • Platform Enterprise plan: 100GB


Egnyte offers many different ways to get your content into the cloud. Please note that your overall plan file size limits apply regardless of the upload mechanism that you use.

1. Dragging and Dropping files into the web interface works for files up to 100GB in size.

2. Browsing for Files from the web interface upload screen works for files up to 100GB in size.

3. Accessing files through the Desktop App is only subject to plan file size limits.

4. Desktop or server synchronization using Desktop Sync or Storage Sync is only subject to plan file size limits.

5. FTP uploading is only subject to plan file size limits.

We do not recommend using FTP to upload more than 500GB of files.


You can download up to 10GB or 10,000 files at a time from the Web UI for folder downloads or multi-file downloads which create a zip. This restriction is different from the limits that apply when users download from Shared File Links (see below). There is no limit for single file downloads.

Also, keep in mind that browsers impose their own set of limitations on downloading which you can change.

Downloading from Shared File Links

Customers on the Team, Office, and Business plans are subject to limits on the quantity of data that can be downloaded from shared file links.

Team plan: 5GB per hour or 30GB per month.

Office and Business plans: 5GB per hour or 60GB per month. 

For example, if you're on the Office plan you sent 5 people a file link to a 2GB video, and they all downloaded the video within an hour, you would violate the shared file link data limit. Users will start seeing a message "sender's monthly download quota has been reached".

The monthly limit is reset at the beginning of every month.

Sending Attachments

When sending a file attachment from the Web UI, you are limited to attachments that are 5MB or less.

If you have questions about your account's file link limits, please contact your Egnyte representative.

Printing from Preview

If a file is over 20MB or more than 100 pages, you will not be able to print directly from the Preview pane.
