Send multiple large files

Transfer up to 1,000 files at a time with a combined maximum size of 10 TB per upload.

Collaborate with colleagues

Collaborators can edit or add to your files and send them back to you.

Safe and trusted

End-to-end encryption keeps your files safe. Senders have full control over who receives and can access the files and for how long.

Set an expiry date

For short-term or time-sensitive material, an expiry date can be set so that a file can only be accessed for a limited time, the default for all files is the maximum 40 days.

Link tracking

FileSender is the recommended tool at my institution for sharing big data files between organisations due to its secure transfer feature. We recently used FileSender to exchange interview recordings for a research project with our partner organisation. I was able to send them FileSender vouchers so that they could securely transfer data to us without needing a FileSender account themselves. It’s an ideal tool for our purposes."
