File Downloads bigger than 20MB

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

We would like to offer manuals and software updates for our products to our customers on the website (as download link). Some of them are bigger than 20MB, therefore I cannot upload them via Squarespace. Any solution to that? I would prefer not to use external space such as Google Drive etc. Any Squarespace internal solution or extension that works well for this purpose?

We're waiting for Squarespace to increase the file limit. Until they do this, the only way around this is to use a third party storage provider like Google Drive. You said you'd prefer not to use this, but there are no 'Squarespace' code solutions available.

Is it possible to move the Squarespace website to another webhoster?

You can export certain content from your Squarespace site into an .xml file, which may be useful if you want to export content to WordPress.

However, not everything will export, as many features rely on the platform's built-in code to display content. See this list of what will and what won't export.

I realize that this original post is from quite awhile ago, but I am wondering if anyone has come up with a more elegant/less clunky solution for large file downloads (ie a zipped folder of audio files) other than google drive?

Or if there's a way to initiate an automatic download of a file stored in google drive instead of the user following a link  to a google drive page and then having to press the download button from there. 

Make sense?
