Upload Speed

  • Does anyone have a breakdown of the process happening during the upload. I have uploaded 3mb image files and 20kb text files. It appears both take the same time to accomplish the upload. I am standing at 24 hours for any upload process to complete.

    This makes me curios what is happening during the process as the size does not seem to be as relevant.

    Currently, Sia is terrible for small files. Files smaller than 40MiB/40MB (I forget the exact size) will be padded to 40MiB/40MB to be uploaded. The dev plan to improve this in the future. If you want to upload small files, the best way to do it is zip it together and upload the zipped file.

    Find me on the Official Sia Discord.

    Feel free to donate if I helped you!
