Resource manager question

#1
Is it possible for manager to store files locally and not in the database? Large files over 2mb are impractical to store in the database.

Users are posting full resolution photos, 16mb in size and the current system built into xenforo is not designed for that.

Pretty sure that the images (attachments) are not stored in the DB.. they are already stored on the disk (or on CDN if used).

All attachments used in XF (post images & attachments, RM files, MG images & videos, etc.) are stored on the file server.

There is no option to store them in the database.
