The site has an upload directory and a download directory. The upload directory can be used to send files, but you will not be able to see the other contents of the folder. This will keep the files you send private and unaccessable to other users.

When you transmit a file, please send a note to Creative Advantage. If the file you are sending is extremely large (more than 10MB), please alert us in advance so we can be sure there is enough room on the server.
