How-To Exchange Single or Multiple Files
(Download/Upload)

Note:
Multiple files or folders can be downloaded or uploaded using
Internet Explorer web browser


If you have further questions after reading these instructions, please send e-mail to lcls-webmaster@slac.stanford.edu

Less than 120 MB per file. 
For files >120 MB, first zip/compress the files before upload. 

For multiple files, you can also zip/compress the files for easier upload and download.
No limit on space or deadline to pick up.

See additional 'Notes' on file uploads.

 
 
 _________________________________________________________

Download Files
  1. Go to the link.

    Some pages do not require login.

    If you are prompted for login, then log in to the Intranet web page

    For SLAC computer accounts, login with username
        slac\<your_username>

    For collaborators computer accounts, login with username
        collab\<your_username>



  2. To download single files

    For Internet Explorer web browsers, select the file link or icon, right click and select 'Save Target As ...' to download the file.
      
    For Firefox and Chrome web browsers, click on the file link or icon, this should initiate the download.


  3. To download multiple files
    This is possible only for Internet Explorer web browsers.

    Click on the 'Library' tab, and select 'Open with Windows Explorer'.
    You will see a window appear which is a file system view of the document library.
    You can now copy and paste multiple documents at the same time, just like a file sytem.

    If you do not see the 'Library' tab at the top of the page, then click on the web page until the 'Documents' and 'Library' tabs appear.

Upload Files

  1. Go to the link.

    Log in to the Intranet web page

    For SLAC computer accounts, login with username
        slac\<your_username>

    For collaborators computer accounts, login with username
        collab\<your_username>



  2. On the menu, click on 'Upload' and browse to upload the file.

    Those not using Internet Explorer browsers will not see the 'Upload Multiple Documents' option.

 

Notes:

  • Avoid using spaces in the filenames, this produces a longer and ugly URL (with '%20' substituted for the space in the URL).

  • Filenames and foldernames with illegal characters for the web cannot be uploaded - even if these characters can be used in Windows file system.  Files linking to these foldernames must be updated prior to upload.

    Illegal characters include # : \ ? * < > % / | " { } ~ [ ] ! ( ) = ; , @ & + 

    Change the filenames before uploading.
    '-' and '_' can be used.

  • Limit of ~100 files in a single upload

  • For CAD files that need to keep the file associations, zip the files before uploading.

Anonymous FTP dropbox 

Space is limited to 1 GB, files need to be picked up within a few days or this space will be cleaned up

 1) For LODCM to upload files via anonymous FTP

      Using an FTP application,
          go to host: fpt.slac.stanford.edu
          log in with username: anonymous 
                         password: (use your e-mail address)

 

After LODCM is logged in, navigate to
    /incoming/LCLS/xfd/LODCM_Dropbox

    upload files here.
    This is a blind dropbox, you will not be able to see files that you have uploaded.

 

2) For SLAC to pick up files from anonymous FTP

Use a secure File Transfer program such as WinSCP. 

Login with your SLAC Unix account.

Navigate to
/afs/slac.public/incoming/LCLS/xfd/LODCM_Dropbox

 

Copy the files.

If you use anonymous FTP, you will see the files but not be able to open or copy them.
You need to copy the files within a few days, or else this area will be cleaned up.
