FilesToGeaux: Upload a New File

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

General Information

FilesToGeaux is a service that allows you to upload file(s) to the LSU web server. Once you have uploaded your file(s), the server will give you the URL that you can use to access your files. The URL can be sent to people with whom you collaborate via e-mail, messaging services, etc. **Since this is a temporary file storage solution, any uploads that are older than 90 days are deleted.**

(**NOTE: In order to upload multiple files at once, you should store the files in a single .zip file or directory.**)
