File Transfer System

File Transfer System is a Staff & Faculty service designed to transfer large files (up to 5GB) in a fast and secure manner. Senders will be notified when the recipient has successfully received the file, and all data is encrypted during the transfer, ensuring that your files are protected and secure. Files sent through the UTSC Filetransfer system are only available for 10 days. After this time period, the files will be purged.
