    Hello, guys!

    I'm creating an audio bundle, but the total size is greater than 6GB (this is the limit imposed on the UAS).
    I would like to know if it is allowed to compress the file in ZIP or RAR to upload them.

    Thanks in advance!

    I only know of the opposite: non-essential assets (such as examples or docs) should or can be zipped.

    Give it a try. If it isn't accepted, split the bundle into two products.

    Definitely don't use RAR! Every OS has ZIP support built-in whereas RAR requires installing a separate software to unrar.

    Are you sure the bundle needs to be this size?
    Just in case: use compressed formats where suitable (eg music => mp3 or ogg at no higher than 256 kbit/s). Trim sound effects from stereo to mono. Choose different (compressed) file formats. Avoid providing the same audio in several variations just with different formats, quality and settings - perhaps at best a "mobile optimized" version of each audio might be welcome.
