Graphical Client SFTP

Graphical file transfer clients can be used to move data between your local machine and remote storage locations. Once you install the client on your computer and set up the remote connection, you may move folders and files between your computer and the remote storage using a drag-and-drop method.

šŸ“ Note: It is impractical to maintain documentation on every storage system that CCLA offers. These examples are chosen to be representative of our services. If you need help connecting to a different storage service, please contact the CCLA.
