How do the transfer speeds differ?

Transfers up to 2 GB are given priority free of charge. For transfers over 2 GB, the user can use only available capacity that is not being used at that moment by subscribers. If a subscriber sends a transfer, we give priority to those transfers without regard to size. The higher the plan, the faster the transfer speed.

How does the directory of incoming and outgoing transfers work?

What is bandwidth and how is it calculated?

In our application, it means total transferred data - i.e. incoming and outgoing data together. A typical user will never exceed their bandwidth limit. If you receive a notification that you have used up all your bandwidth, it's not a problem. Purchase one of our plans and you can continue to work with our application as needed.

Can the application be used as a company ftp?

Yes, if you have the PRO plan, you can set up your own domain. Let your suppliers know about your domain, and senders can then fill in your email address and upload data. Expiration of data sent through your domain is governed by your profile, so the sender doesn't need to have a paid profile - you'll receive your data quickly, and it will expire based on your plan (in either 20 or 30 days). You can then save the data indefinitely in your storage, where it won’t expire.

The recipient is not a paid user. Will they have priority download based on my plan?

I get the message “unable to read file...” – What should i do?

This notification indicates that the application has detected a change in the file's size or location. This happens, for example, when sending data from an external device, a network device, or the like, when the device denies access to files or changes them incrementally. The device where the file is located must be made available again, and the application will continue the transfer. If the data has been modified (resaved, data incrementally written by the system, etc.), the transfer must be repeated and steps taken to ensure that the file size remains the same throughout the transfer, such as by zipping the file before sending.

How does transfer expiration work?

Transfers expire based on your plan (be sure you are logged in before using the application to ensure your transfers have the correct expiration). If you have a paid plan, transfers can also be saved indefinitely to your storage and shared from there. Data saved in your storage does not expire.
The "progress link" - the link that displays throughout the transfer and that is shareable while the transfer is still taking place – expires based on the sender's plan.
For example, if the recipient has a paid plan and the sender has a free plan, the recipient will find the transfer link, which expires based on the sender’s plan, in their list of incoming/outgoing transfers.
Expiration periods can be extended even for active and undeleted transfers retroactively by purchasing one of our paid plans. When you buy a plan, the expiration period of all transfers in your profile's incoming and outgoing directories is automatically extended.

Zip archives larger than 4 GB can’t be unzipped on mac os. What’s the problem?

For some time now, there has been a problem with systems running older versions of MacOS not being able to open zip files larger than 4 GB using the standard system utility if the data was not zipped using the same utility. If you download a file larger than 4 GB on MacOS, either download the transfer as individual files (if your browser supports this - we recommend Chrome) or download as a zip file but use something other than the system utility to unzip it – we’ve successfully tested iZip Unarchiver and WinZip for Mac. Data over 4 GB in size that is zipped using the standard MacOS system utility will only be able to be unzipped using the same utility. If the recipient uses a different system, we recommend zipping the data (above 4 GB) using something other than the standard MacOS system utility or send the data unzipped.
On systems running newer versions of MacOS, this problem has been largely eliminated. However, problems still occur if you try to unzip an archive which contains at least one file that is larger than 4 GB using the standard MacOS system utility.
