1010.4 Uploading Large Files or Large Numbers of Files to the Electronic Registration System
The electronic registration system will not accept any file that is more than 500 MB in size. Before uploading a file to the system, the applicant should confirm that the file does not exceed this size limit. The system also has a 120 minute “time out” feature that automatically terminates the upload process if it takes more than two hours to complete.
If the applicant intends to upload a large number of files, the Office encourages the applicant to submit the deposit in one or more compressed ZIP files. If the applicant intends to upload a very large file, the Office encourages the applicant to compress the deposit in a ZIP file or to separate the deposit into two or more smaller files.
Alternatively, the applicant may upload the deposit during two or more upload sessions;
information concerning this procedure is available on the Office’s website.
If the applicant is unable to upload the deposit with these options, then as discussed in Section 1010.3, the applicant may fix the deposit copy(ies) on a disc and deliver it to the Office by mail, commercial carrier, courier, or hand delivery, together with a shipping slip that connects the deposit with the online application.
