Purchased & received a .ZIP file containing image.MF, image.OVF & image.VMDK files from SolarWinds; it’s a threat monitor collector (for the Cloud). These files are sized 241 bytes, 8K and 992MB uncompressed respectively. The digital ocean documentation for custom images clearly states that a .VMDK is a valid type, and the size of the image is certainly less than the maximum upload size of 100GB.
I’ve attempted to upload the .VMDK 2-3 times, each time failing with the message that the file exceeds the 100GB limit which it obviously is not. I’m at a loss, as this shouldn’t be an issue and work as advertised. I have no idea what may or may not be taking place.
Am I missing something here?

The 100 GB limit for custom images applies to the virtual disk inside the image as well as the file size. For example, this vmdk file is only 5.7G:
while its filesystem is 500G:
