Share large files with internal or external collaborators
ZendTo is the ideal solution for transferring large files securely between colleagues both inside and outside the University.
A ‘drop-off’ can comprise of one file or multiple files, but the maximum you can send in a single drop-off is 20GB.
ZendTo is also the University’s recommended solution for transferring files that contain sensitive, personal, or confidential data securely between colleagues.
- When using ZendTo to send files that contain sensitive, personal, or confidential data to colleagues outwith the University, it is mandatory to first encrypt the files using 7-Zip.
- If you are going to use ZendTo to send files that contain such data to University of Aberdeen colleagues, we strongly recommend you first encrypt the files using 7-Zip.
- For full instructions, see our dedicated user guide.
This web-based service is available to staff and students at https://zendto.abdn.ac.uk/. Login using your University credentials.
