How big can my shared file be on FrostWire?


The limit on file size shared with FrostWire depends only on your Operating System's file system.

If you are running on Windows with a FAT32 formatted disk, the largest file size permitted is 4GB, however a torrent can be made to have multiple files, so if you can split the file there's really no limit.

Now... if you're running Windows or Linux or MacOSX with a newer file system like NFTS or ext4, in practice there's really no limit (the limit is actually 16 Exabytes, which is the same as 16 million terabytes, I don't think there's a harddrive that big, but most operating systems already can support this, therefore FrostWire supports it as well)
