Quick Drop Form

 The most common method of transferring files is the Quick Drop form above. This form is the quickest and simplest method of uploading large files, but it also has the least functionality. No registration is required. Simply select your files and click upload. You can use the form for quotes, and also for regular submissions. Just scroll up.


Upload Speeds

File transfer upload speeds are still very slow across most of the UK, typically less than 10% of the average download speed. In practice we do not advise uploading files over 200Mb in size unless you have a fast cable connection.

If your files are uncompressed (Wav, AIFF) consider converting your file to a compressed format such as DSS, WMA or MP3, for faster upload speeds. These converters are free to use in their basic editions:

WinFF - Download

Switch - Download


Iphone / Android

The cloud file server has a powerful smartphone app that can be used in conjunction with any audio recording app. Also there are a number of free dictation apps which allow you to send notes to us securely via FTP direct from your phone. Setup takes five minutes. Contact us for instructions.
