Although we have unlimited storage capacity with our contract, we have discovered that there is a restriction on the number of files which we can upload. At present we have used around a fifth of our allocation. Eventually, we will use this up entirely and will have to delete old files to make way for the new. It's not imminent, but it is inevitable.

We are on the cheaper Deluxe contract, but you'll see that all the contracts have the same restriction so we can't pay more to extend it.

So, please can you think carefully when you upload photos; whether every single one is absolutely necessary. Better to have a couple of really good or pertinent photos than dozens of not so good or irrelevant ones.

And when you upload your 3D print files, please can you put them all into a single zipped folder rather than uploading each file separately.

It would be a pity to have to start deleting the wonderful resources which the forum has accumulated over the years, so the longer we can postpone that day, the better it will be for all of us.

Many thanks in advance for your co operation.

If you do need to upload several images then it's possible to combine them all into one file. This can be done easily online using this tool - https://products.aspose.app/pdf/merger/jpg-to-jpg

Many thanks to Graeme (GAP) for this clever solution. You can see the result of combining several photos into one file on his Ringbalin Light Railway thread - https://gardenrails.org/forum/viewtopic ... 05#p159798
