System error on deploy

My site was deploying for a while but recently fails every time even after clearing cache and retrying.
It has a bunch of quite large files - although nothing over 100mb.

I appreciate that others were having the same issue a few months ago but, unlike then, there are no indications that netlify servers are having issues.

Hi there!

Cheers for reaching out. You’re right, this is a slightly different System Error issue however it’s likely due to the large file sizes.

Point 4 in this useful guide might steer you in the right direction. We’ve got a couple of means of handling large files.
