We have now opened our beta trial for FileCentral Desktop.
This application will improve functionality and reliability when uploading files to FileCentral.
It provides the following extended functionality:
* Automatic retries
* Pause and resume of uploads
* Possibility to send files larger than 2 GB
* Files are transparently split into smaller parts during upload in order avoid limitations in some firewalls.
The beta trial runs on http://beta.filecentral.se which is a separate system with a “clean” database. This means that in order to participate you need to register and verify your e-mail account before logging in.
After the beta period the database will be cleared again and therefore the beta system should not be used for important files/transmissions.
We have increased the levels for the free acount in the beta environment to business levels plus it is possible to send up to 5 GB in one job.
In order to participate:
1. Register at http://beta.filecentral.se
