Uploading Assets and Folders


Users can upload new assets (multiple files and folders) to their mounted volume to share with other Pilot users. The user name and time of the upload is recorded when uploading.

The Pilot includes a limitation for the total number of files and their combined size that can be uploaded as per the table below:

Version Total Number of Files Combined Size
Version 19 and Above 1000 Less than 4GB
Prior to version 19 1000 2 GB

*The combined size limitation applies to a single file or multiple files in one batch process.

Xinet Pilot supports uploading assets from a Macintosh environment using AFP(Apple Filing Protocol) and from Windows and Linux environments using Bonjour mounted volumes.
