Sharing BIG Stuff

How to use File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to share files over 10MB

Created by Rosemary Browne, Information Resource Coordinator

Information Technology Services, Coastal Carolina UniversityConway, SC


First, select and copy the file that you want to share.

Red Flag: The file name cannot contain spaces. If you need to use spaces in the name, put an underscore between the words.




In that address bar, type this: Computer.

[email protected]

then press enter.


This is the window that will open, Notice that the address has changed.

Double-click the from_ccu folder to open it.


Right click in the blank space in the open folder, and select Paste from the pop-up menu. This puts a copy of your file in the from_ccu folder. You can’t delete it once it’s pasted in the folder.



Create an email to the person you need to share the file with. Instruct the recipient to click the link to access the file. Press CTRL+V to paste the first part of the address into the email.


At the end of the address, place your cursor immediately to the right of the last forward slash (/) and type the name of your document. Press enter at the end of the document name so it becomes a part of the link.


Case matters! Be sure you use upper and lower case identical to your document’s name. Again, no spaces are allowed.


Send the email. It’s a good idea to copy yourself on it so you can test whether you did it correctly!


When the email arrives, open it and click on the link. you can test whether you did it correctly!


You’ll be given the choice to Open, Save, or Cancel. It’s generally safer to save the document, then open it from the saved location.


Points to remember
Points to remember It’s generally safer to save the document, then open it from the saved location.

  • No spaces in file names.

  • Complete the ftp address in the email using the EXACT title of the document. Case matters.

  • You will find that using simpler names makes for simpler sharing.

  • Once you paste your file into the from_ccu folder, you cannot retrieve it. If you put the wrong one in, no worries…just don’t share it with anyone and no one will ever know!
