The document repository in uKnowva is a place where users can upload files and share them with other users of the network. The uploaded files can be viewed in the browser or can be downloaded and saved to one’s system.

uKnowva’s document repository has no limit on the size of files being uploaded. When uploading a file, uKnowva checks the server’s upload size limit and accordingly breaks the file into multiple chunks and uploads them individually. These files are then reassembled after upload and saved. For example, if you want to upload a file of 200 mb and the server’s file size limit is 10 mb, uKnowva will break the file into 20 chunks of 10 mb each and upload them.

The document repository is accessed by clicking Documents. This is what the repository looks like.
