Hi Wei, 3Gb is not that large of a file and should upload without issue. How are you uploading the file? - May I suggest that you try placing the file in a web-accessable location and provide the url to the upload tool in the paste box. Galaxy does accept the upload of individual gzipped files which can greatly reduce the time required for the transfer. Thanks, Dan

Hi Dan, Many thanks for your reply. I just upload the file from my computer and browse the location. If I upload the zip compressed file, should I choose format? My data is fastq file in txt file. And how could I put the file in a web-accessible location? You mean the FTP server? Thanks for your help! Wei

Hi Wei, To upload a gzipped file (e.g. somefile.fastq.gz), just upload as you normally would (don't set to - this is a special format), the file will be ungzipped automatically; zip files are not yet supported. As far as a web-accessible location, you can specify http(s) and ftp locations by entering e.g. or into the 'paste' box in the upload tool, if you have access this type of resource. Thanks, Dan
