Download File - Max Size

I have tried downloading a file from a http://link but it id 60MB .gz compressed file. Haven’t been able, seems to break every time.

Wanted to know if there is a file size limit on the module. (using n8n cloud).


How large is the uncompressed file? Because I guess it probably gets so large that the instance runs out of memory and then crashes.
The smaller instances have obviously less memory than the larger ones.

Compressed is 60MB, uncompressed some 250MB , has 900k lines in 31 columns aprox. It is a strange file. Inside the compressed .gz file there is an.xls file but has a vertical line separator. “|”

Yes, that could get hard to the limit.
Considering that binary files do get base64 encoded (which makes them increase in size) and depending on what happens afterward in the workflow (and so maybe has to get saved a second time in memory) and depending on whatever else is running at the same time.

Got it. Seems to get stuck on the first http get. Will try something else prior to sending to n8n
