      As admin go My Private Files. At the top right of the file manager thing you should see "Maximum size for new files: Unlimited - drag and drop available"

      Log in as a student and go to My Private Files. Now you should see something like "Maximum size for new files: 5MB - drag and drop available" The actual number there will depend on your specific site settings. Just make sure that a number is displayed.

      Description

      If a user with the capability moodle/course:ignorefilesizelimits goes to their private files they see a message like "Maximum size for new files: -1 bytes - drag and drop available"

      It should be something like "Maximum size for new files: unlimited - drag and drop available"

      To be even more useful I suggest the drag and drop message mentions the server file limit:

      "Maximum size for new files: unlimited - drag and drop available (up to 8Mb)"
