Uploading files

If you have a large number of small files to upload, we suggest that you use an archiving program such as WinZip, StuffIt or Tar to convert your files to a single archive. This will decrease overall size and simplify your upload.

Check your power management options on your operating system to ensure that your system will not go into standby or hibernation during the uploads.

If you have a large amount of data to upload, please read our upload information page before you start.

If you are uploading audio files, please read our guide to registering audio files online.
