Moving discussion to new thread for the post from @andrianarimisa 's.
The fact, is our CA - Makira become a huge file of 29 GB of data from 2018 to now because they take pictures of some of the threats found during patrols --So there are:
(1) I try to upload it to SMART Connect for that size - it is now taking me 3 days and nights (since Wednesday 19th July until today Friday 21st afternoon still uploading
(2) Thats’ why I am considering deleting all attached image files in each patrol from January 2018 till July 2023. Here is what happened, after I back up the SMART Desktop 6.3 -the previous version we used - to upgrade to the current SMART 7.5.6 - none of the attached files inside each patrol is found - on the column of the attached file becomes (None). Thus, not unlike the previous version (version 6.3 to version 7.1) in which you cannot find any more in each patrol in the attached file. However, the size of the SMART Desktop indicates that these attached files are still there, as during the upgrade I see the name of some of these attached files uploaded from the Backup 7.1 to 7.5.6 --with the jpeg extension, etc…
My idea is if I managed to see again - Patrol by patrol the attached file - I can re-edit each patrol by ONLY DELETING ALL THE PHOTOS- to let each patrol without attached files and for that could be easily uploaded to SMART Connect- I’ve done that as these when the SMART Desktop 7.1 was launched - I upgrade my 6.3 and deleted some of patrol - as it was in that moment a test of maximum 1 Gb size for the connect - So when I only use 2018 patrol and delete one by one attached file - it become light and I managed to upload to SMART Connect —
That’s my problem now, as it appears that the 29 GB Desktop SMART 7.5.6 might not get finished to upload on SMART Connect - I need to delete the attached file on each patrol but none of the patrols have attached file - even I see that some are on filestore…
Anyway, I backup this big SMART Desktope file for my site and made various copies before I touch it.
Sorry for the long email Matt.
