Your files transfer might because your internet is slow or you are editing the selected file. In this case, please check our answer to "Why is my upload speed slow?" Sometimes the file transfer does not complete if you're moving or editing the selected file. In such instances, the Surge Send platform will have a hard time assessing the correct file size and it will in turn stall the transfer.
