Sending Large Files

UVM email has a limit of around 8MB for an attachment, so if you have a file larger than 8MB or you need to send multiple files you must use the UVM File Transfer system.

The File Transfer System can send a single file or multiple files up to 100 GB in size.

Checking File Size:

PC: Right click item, select "Properties"
Under the "General" tab find "Size"

MAC: Select item, hit Command + I
"Get Info" box will appear. Find "Size"

Send a file via the UVM File Transfer Service:


Follow this link and click "Send a File".
Click the button "I am: a UVM Affiliate"
Log in with your NetID and password.
Enter the Recipient email address (must put in if a UVM address)
Click Browse to select the file from your computer to send.
Click Begin Transfer to send the file, depending on the size it may take a few minutes to send.

If you have multiple files that you would like to send, zipping them into a compressed folder is recommended.
(For instructions on how to zip or compress a file, see "Compressing and Zipping Files")
