I have a zip file that is 418 MB in size that is downloadable from the CMS website https://www.cms.gov/NationalProvIden...semination.asp at the bottom, where it says NPI Downloadable File. But, believe it or not, when it is downloaded, unlike the documentation I see everywhere that says it's about 2GB when unzipped, my computer consistently tells me it is an incomprehensible 6PB. I've never heard of anything like it.
Please see the screen print. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. I've deleted the zip file and have attempted to download it again and again, always with the same result. Am I the only one getting this abnormal output?
I'm having the same issue, it's not just you. It wasn't like that a few months ago (was actually around 2GB)
I guess we have to wait until a better file is posted? If you find another site to download this file, please let me know!
