Status validating the destination file paths
Basicly, it does the same as file_save_upload, with the only difference: * source isn't a field, but a string containing the url of the external file.Validating should work, but I don't know if errorchecking is done correctly...At least in XP, you can paste in an address in the location part of the browse/explore window, then it'll download the image to a tmp folder and add it to the form, saving the manual download/upload.It's nasty but not impossible to do.drewish: sorry was answering the original post rather than commenting on the issue in general.
Though not a firmly enforced requirement, we recommend using this flow for files larger than 100 MB.To upload files of smaller sizes, you can use the simpler upload flow. Server will respond with HTTP Status 200 and ETag plus SHA512 hash for the entire completed file.Client should check hash for entire file to validate uploaded content.Note that if the destination path does not contain the original folder name only the subfolders and files within the folder will be copied.For example, if the source folder is at "Shared/A" and you are copying to destination "Shared/B", all contents of folder A will be copied to "B"; however, if the destination is "Shared/B/A" the folder "A" will be created within "B" as well. Best practice for downloading files, especially for large files (over 1GB), unstable internet connections, and faster download speeds since sections of the file are downloaded in parallel.
