We're aware that members of the University use services like Dropbox and OneDrive to transfer large files, or to make files available for use in any location.
Although these are popular and useful services, we would advise caution for the following reasons:
It should also be noted that some people have reported that Dropbox doesn't work correctly on managed Windows 7 and Windows 10 PCs. We've investigated and reported this to Dropbox, but haven't found a solution.
We recommend that you use the following services instead:
|Transferring large files||DropOff Service|
|Transferring sensitive files that can't be sent by email for contractual reasons (eg restricted research data)||DropOff Service|
|Sharing files with other users (including external users)||Google Drive|
|Enabling offsite access||
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Virtual Desktop Service (VDS)
