So, I am having some issues, and I am not very tech savvy when it comes to Networks. So I work for a small company editing videos for clients. All the footage is on our network, and thats where I download and upload my finished footage too. My problem is, when I go to upload larger footage (over 2 GB usually) it does not let me upload!

Basically I am able to download large files of over 2 GB and I can upload smaller videos under 1 GB, but every time I go to upload some of my larger videos, thats where I run into the problem. Now it will actually start uploading without errors, but after two mins or so I receive the error message, "you are not connected to the network, please try again or re connect."

Now I do log on to my IP address with no problems, so with being able to download with no issues, I am unsure as to why I can't upload?!

If anyone has any insight to this problem I would be very grateful for any tips or knowledge you can lend me. Thank you very much in advance. Also, I am not too smart with this stuff, so I apologize if more info is needed.

Can you check what the filesystem is for your Network storage? Possibly getting limited because of that ...

Sorry I probably should have said, that when I give the file to other members on my team, they are able to upload it without any problems. It seems to be just me that has the issue. However, I am the only one on my team running Windows and not Mac. Not sure if that makes a difference, but I wanted to put it out there.

How are you uploading? (just file copy)
Is yours the only Windows PC or can you try from a different one?

Yeah just a simple file copy. I am dragging the files from one folder on my c:/drive to a sub folder in the network. I am the only PC too.
