ETS File Transfer Service

UVM’s File Transfer Service is available to share files which are too large to send as email attachments, or which may be in a file format that is not accepted by UVM mail servers for security reasons. Files and folders sent via File Transfer are available to download for 3 weeks before they are removed from the server.

 After a file or folder is removed from the server, it cannot be re-obtained. The original sender will need to send the file or folder again.

The File Transfer Service is a good way to share large individual files and is perfect for collaborating with colleagues from other educational institutions, vendors, departments, and professional organizations.

UVM affiliates can send large files (up to 200GB) to other UVM affiliates or to recipients outside of the UVM community. Non-UVM affiliates may also use the File Transfer service to send files to UVM affiliates.
