    1. Should be the same as maximum supported file size by CAS 
    2. We recommend 100 Mb , as 99% of the threats are not larger in size.
    3. The answer is here in the CAS Admin Guide 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi @Slava Thanks for your reply.

    Is the below KB still applicable with CAS 3.0 as it says the maximum size when uploading files manually is 100 MB.​

    HI SymSpec,

    That KB is referring to the sandbox. The sandbox has the ability to manually load files as well. In reference to loading to CAS, that is found under Utilities > Test, and the GUI informs that the upload limit there is 2GB

    Hope that helps!
