File chunking, or file splitting,​serves one main purpose, which is to split files into a chunk of certain sizes so that large files can be uploaded to a storage medium that has restrictions on individual file sizes, such as GMail, Email Providers, Microsoft OneDrive etc.\\ \\ The basic principle behind splitting files with chunking is that after supplying a filename and extension   file chunking produces a set of output files with a base name and increasing sequential extensions.\\ \\ If you click on any extension you can choose to download the full file or a chunk (although there should never a need for you to download a chunk only).\\ \\ There are many places within the Storage Made Easy Platofrm that file chunking can beset and there is actually a file chunking hierarchy within our platform. This hierarchy is:\\ \\ - Global   (System)\\ - Package (System)\\ - User account   (user controlled from within the "​**//​My Account->​ Providers//​**"​ page)\\ - Cloud Provider (user controlled from within the settings of each cloud provider)\\ \\ in which each setting as you move down the hierarchy over-rides the prior.\\ \\ For example:\\ \\ Global is set to 100MB.  \\ Package is set to 30MB  \\ User account chunk size is set at '​0'​ (which means use Global)\\ Provider1 chunksize is 0   (which means use Global)\\ Provider2 chunksize is 20MB\\ ​  \\ In this scenario Provider2 has a chunk size of 20MB   and Provider1 has chunk size 30MB\\ \\ The main thing to remember is that a user can alter Chunk Size in two ways, firstly changing chunking for all cloud providers from the **//My Accounts -> Providers//​** page, and secondly over-riding this on a per Provider basis by altering the chunk size from the individual Provider settings.\\ \\ + +
