I was uploading zip file around 500mb via ftp and it stucks at 98%. I tried every possible thing, like resuming and nothing helped. I read somewhere that it happens when the file sizes are big. RAR file is around 300mb and ZIP around 500mb. Now I deleted the file and uploading it again. I guess it’s gonna stuck again.

So, the question is, why rar files aren’t accepted?

From what I understand, ZIP is the most universal format that all users across any platform can uncompress.

Right, the issue is with RARs on PCs. I own a Mac so I’m not entirely sure, but apparently RARs create more problems than ZIPs, which is why we only accept that compression format.

Besides which, when you say “RAR” it sounds like you’re trying to be a lion, which isn’t the case with ZIP .

Although it sounds like a bullet just went over your head.

Just wanted you to know that I actually laughed out loud when I read that.
