How to transfer files to your T: Drive using CoreFTP Secure File Transfer Client

You must have logged on to a classroom instructor computer at least once before you use FTP to send files to your T: drive.


Each instructor has a T: drive on the Technology-Enhanced Classroom (TEC) instructor PC or Mac to store classroom documents.

If you want to access your T: drive files from your home or office, you can use CoreFTP from your Windows computer (click here for Mac instructions). CoreFTP Secure File Transfer Client is an encrypted file transfer program that will safeguard your data.

CoreFTP can be downloaded at http://www.coreftp.com for free. Just click on Core FTP now! You can choose the free version of the program from the list.

After you have downloaded and installed Core FTP LE into your computer you can use it with your T: drive with the following steps.
  1. To begin, launch the CoreFTP Secure File Transfer Client

  2. When CoreFTP starts, the Site Manager window will automatically launch.
