Secure File Transfer

Secure File Transfer allows you to send and receive large files quickly and securely. You can create a unique, temporary link for each file you want to send, and then share the link via email.


Secure File Transfer includes:

  • All files are encrypted
  • 98-gigabyte quota for one file or multiple files
  • Drag and drop or browse and upload an individual file or zipped folder to create a new link
  • Set the link to expire in one to seven days after you create it 
  • Copy the link to share it via email or another communication tool
  • Option to receive a confirmation email when the file is downloaded 
  • Option to require the recipient to log in with an NDSU account before downloading the file
  • View existing links at a glance, with options to quickly delete existing links and files
  • Create multiple links for a single file to share a unique link with each recipient, which is particularly helpful when combined with the download receipt option
