FileSender is a service that allows you to share large files with other people via a web site, rather than sending the file via e-mail, which is sometimes prohibited because of the file size. This service is available to all registered students, faculty and staff members.
A Guest Voucher feature allows IUP account holders to provide a one-time use voucher to non-IUP account holders (such as a software vendor) so that the non-IUP account holder can upload a file.
FileSender can be used with just a few easy steps:
The recipients will receive an e-mail message with a link to the file you just uploaded. By clicking on the link, they are able to open or download the file.
Please note that the recipients can forward the message to others. If someone has the download link, they can download the file. For this reason, this method should not be used to transfer any confidential information to other sources. Please also note that if you used a program such at 7-Zip to encrypt the file before sending, receipents will need to extract the file before they will be able to view it.
