DropboxIT Overview

DropboxIT at dropboxit.uark.edu is a web application that allows students, faculty and staff to send files too large for email or those containing sensitive information not suitable for email. There is a limit of 1.9GB per file and 25 files per transfer.

Require Secure UARK Login

For secure file transfer between UARK users, include only UARK email addresses in the Recipients field, and check the "Require secure UARK login to retrieve files" box before clicking Upload files.
