The largest file currently uploaded is (don't laugh) 1.44Gb (as a zip 
archive). The files are mostly camera ready artwork for anything from 
logos for business cards to exhibition sized 4 colour posters, and very 
high resolution photography for 4 colour reproduction, with a smattering 
of other content.

I'm not fussy. :)

As long as the users can upload their files, I'm happy.
