File & Data

Cloud service providers set their own policies and rules on the types of files they will accept, and DMB follows their rules.  Please refer to the website of each cloud service provider.

For Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 (1709 or later), DMB supports file path length exceeding 256 characters. For other O/Ss, full file path length needs to be less than 256 characters.

Box's version control is applied. Please refer to Box's version control specifications.

You will receive the error message: "File size exceed".
Box Business/Enterprise limits the maximum transferrable per-file size to "5GB", and you can't transfer a file whose size exceeds this limit.
