TXT File Links for Large Files

SafeSend Exchange Legacy version only. 

When a file is sent and exceeds our file limits SafeSend Exchange will generate a text file with a link for the items. The links can be pasted into a web browser to download the files. The link will not open a webpage, but will automatically download the document to the recipient's Downloads folder.

Please Note:

The link in the .TXT will be valid for a maximum of one hour. If the link is accessed after this time, it will display as invalid. The .TXT file can be re-downloaded to generate a new download link.
