Is there a way to copy an app with more than the 75mb file attachment limit?

    I need to copy a table that has 102mb spread across a few hundred records. Is there any workaround here? 

    I know I can create a spreadsheet  with the URLs and download them, but then I have to manually re-attach them (I think) and that would be insanely manual.

    I do not have a native solution for this; but if you're interested in pushing your file attachments to the cloud; and linking them to Quick Base; Juiced Technologies' products integrate well with Amazon S3 (super cheap for storage); and then you can copy your apps without limitation.  Also, they have a tool that will push all your existing file attachments to the cloud.  Worth talking to them, I think.

    Another solution if your purpose is simply to create a copy of the App; but still need the file attachments is to build a formula that will "access" the original source files from the same record ids; since the file attachments would be stored in the same original record ID#s as would be in your copy.  New records however would be stored inside the copied application.

    It depends on what you're copy application purpose is as to a good solution.

    Hi Adam,

    In this instance if you are the application admin and want to copy an application over the limit for the self service copy option I would recommend putting in a support case with the Care team letting them know the application you want to copy and that you are over the self-service copy limit.

    thanks Mark!
    We also have a file attachment to file attachment field sweep utility.  So you can copy your application with data but without file attachments.  We can then run our sweep process that will copy the files from the original app to their respective records/file attachment field(s) in the new copied app.
