Testa FileCentral Desktop (swedish text only)

Uppdaterad 28 december 2010. Nu med automatiska uppdateringar online.

Nu är det möjligt att testa applikationen FileCentral Desktop.

Applikationen förbättrar funktionaliteten vid uppladdning av filer:

  • Möjlighet att skicka filer större än 2 GB
  • Automatiska omförsök
  • Pausa och återuppta uppladdning
  • Filerna delas upp i mindre delar vid uppladdning vilket undviker begränsningar i vissa brandväggar

Till att börja med är det bara möjligt att köra den mot vår testmiljö på Detta är en helt separat miljö vilket gör att man måste registrera sig på nytt och verifiera kontot innan man kan logga in.

Dock har vi ställt upp gränserna för gratiskontot till “Business”-nivåer och det går även att skicka filer upp till 5 GB via applikationen.

1. Registrera dig på

2. Titta igenom användarhandledningen (PDF),

3. Ladda ned och installera klienten
Mac: (50 MB)
Windows: (111 MB)

4. Testkör klienten, du måste fylla i dina kontouppgifter och även välja “Server: Test (” på fliken “Inställningar” -> “Konto”.

5. Återkom med kommentarer genom att mejla Har du något du vill diskutera går det också bra att ringa på 08-555 768 60.

Observera att testmiljön är just en testmiljö och för viktiga/riktiga sändningar är det fortfarande webbuppladdning via som gäller.

Vi ser fram emot att få din feedback.
Både ris och ros välkomnas, ev fel ska vi snabba oss att rätta och konstruktiva förslag hur vi kan bli ännu bättre älskar vi!

Resumable downloads now supported

We have now added support for resumable downloads to FileCentral. This means that you can resume a download that was interrupted for some reason, provided that the browser supports it.

If you are using Firefox there are multiple download manager plugins that can be used.

For Windows users we can also recommend FDM Lite, which is a free download manager that integrates with different browsers and works well with the updated FileCentral.

Multiple recipients can now be entered easily

The input field for recipient has been changed so that multiple recipients can be entered by separating them with space, comma (“,”), semicolon (“;”) or newline.

This makes it much easier to, for example, copy and paste addresses from other documents.

Clearly our visitor base may not be representative for the internet community as a whole. We do have an unusually large portion of Mac/OSX users.

More than 20 000 registered users

Now we have more than 20 000 users registered at

We have seen a slow and steady growth of our user base since FileCentral was launched in the summer of 2006 and while not aiming to maximize the number of users it is encouraging to see that so many appreciate and use our service.

Our main goal with is to provide a tool that professional users find useful and therefore decide to upgrade to our commercial Business and Inbox accounts.

We send out an extra “Thanks!” to all our current customers with commercial accounts!
