Introduction: File-Express: File Sharing Service has been implemented to meet the continually growing demands of the UF community. This service allows any individuals with UF Gatorlink accounts to exchange files that may be too large, or otherwise blocked by, traditional e-mail methods. Using a secure server and the Gatorlink Authentication system, users can easily share files with members of both the UF and Non-UF community.
