FTP File Transfer Limits

File transfers must not exceed 30MB in any one hour period, or the upload may fail.

To decrease the size of a file, place all data files whether time series, metadata or other into zip files for FTP transfer.

If you need to send files larger than 30MB, please place them on a CD/ROM or an external storage device and send to:

Data Operations Manager
Water Data Management Section
GPO Box 2334
Canberra, ACT 2601

In special circumstances the 30 MB per hour FTP limit might be lifted by the Bureau to assist some data transfers. Please send an email to waterdata@bom.gov.au to request a temporary lifting of the restriction.
