I managed to resolve the issue by contacting salesforce and requesting for the file size to be increased to 10mb rather than 5mb.

 

Once the change had been made the files uploaded without a problem.

 

Hope this helps.

 

cheers

Hi,

 

No, it's not possible in any way. You cant upload attachment greater than 5 MB even from salesforce standard UI.

Beacause the size limit for an attached file is 5 MB when attached directly to the related list, including a fileattached to a solution. When a file is attached to a record’s Chatter feed it’sadded to the Notes and Attachments related list as a feed attachment,and the file size limit is 2 GB. The size limit for all files attachedto an email is 10 MB.
