File transfer

Click Transfer or Sync to… in the command panel on the right side of the page. A new collection panel will open, with a "Transfer or Sync to" field at the top of the panel.

Find the Globus Tutorial Endpoint 2 collection and connect to it as you did with the Globus Tutorial Endpoint 1 above. The default directory, /~/ will again be empty. Your goal is to transfer the sample files here. Click on the left collection, Globus Tutorial Endpoint 1, and select all three files. The Start > button at the bottom of the panel will activate.

Between the two Start buttons at the bottom of the page, the Transfer & Sync Options tab provides access to several options. By default, Globus verifies file integrity after transfer using checksums. Click the information icons for explanations of the other transfer settings. Globus gives you powerful control over the behaviour of the transfer with a simple mouse click. Change the transfer settings if you’d like. You may also enter a label for the transfer, but this is not required.

Click the Start > button to transfer the selected files to the collection in the right panel. Globus will display a green notification panel—confirming that the transfer request was submitted—and add a badge to the Activity item in the command menu on the left of the page.

Only three small files were transferred in our simple example, so the transfer will complete quickly. Click "Activity" in the command menu on the left of the page to go to the Activity page. On the Activity page, click the arrow icon on the right to view details about the transfer. You will also receive an email with the transfer details.

Click File Manager in the command menu on the left of the Activity page to return to the File Manager. The collections you were viewing before will reappear. You may notice that the transferred files are not listed in the right panel with the Globus Tutorial Endpoint 2 collection and the /~/ path, even though the transfer has completed. Click the refresh icon (circular arrows) at the top of the collection panel to see the updated contents.
