Brilliant!!! The only solution that worked, and I tried everything I could find on the internet. My file size was 7.3GB, so it occurs with files less than 10GB. I have a Mac, and MegaSync doesn’t seem to work, so it’s a bit of a pain to open a windows machine and use MegaSync there. This save me a lot of hassle, as I use Mega often. Thanks so much. (And how do you guys figure s**t like this out?!?)
