Hi Saranga, Files > 2GB generally cannot be uploaded through the browser. This upload may have failed. We are working on better error handling and progress bars for uploads, but in the meantime, I would recommend placing your file on an HTTP or FTP site and uploading by placing the URL to the file in the URL/Text box. --nate

Scott: 15GB file is a candidate for a FTP upload because web browsers can't usually handle this size. FTP server address is and credentials are the same you use for Galaxy (you have to use some other client outside of web browser to connect to this FTP server and upload this large file successfully FileZilla). After you finish uploading your file there you will see it in the upload tool (Get Data / Upload File) on Galaxy (when logged in). Then you will be able to start using it in history. There is an awesome screencast that shows the full process here: Martin
