Hello @Hareesh,

 

Would you be able to provide more information on the behavior you're encountering within Alteryx when you try to load these files? Are you loading them from a local location that's synced with Dropbox? Are you seeing an error within Designer, or can you provide us with more information on what's different between Box and Dropbox?

 

Have you also seen our help article on opening files within zip files? There are some limitations to this particular operation depending on how the files were created.

Hopefully this at least gives you a place to start, but please feel free to provide more information and we should hopefully be able to help further!

 

Thanks,

Hi
Mike

 

These are all dbf files with the size 1gb each. we have more than 800 files(800 GB worth files). If they were 30 or 90 GB or  i would have managed by syncing on to local machine.

Planning to dump all the information on Redshift, but i have some enterprise limitation, if my organisation accepts to move and maintain all the data on redshift with help of alteryx then this issue will solve.

Regards,
Hareesh
