How long does it take to upload?

Permanent data storage doesn’t happen in an instant. But most files are uploaded in just a few seconds. Larger files can take several minutes to upload. When the circle icon is completely filled, your files are uploaded to the permaweb.

After files are uploaded with ArDrive they are then distributed to the nodes, which can take a few minutes to work through the network.

After that your data will be accessible and on the network forever.
