Why is FileVert virtuous?

FileVert is an eco-designed portal that is committed to ensuring that each transfer is a responsible gesture: by estimating the volumes of data transmitted, your transfers are analyzed in a meter that evaluates the gCO2 emitted in sending and receiving.


How does FileVert apply this template? What does the calculation tool do?

The calculation tool records the amount of data transferred, the transfer time and the type of terminal used, It converts this data into power consumption,
It transforms this consumption and estimates the CO2 emissions.The objective of the meter? To give everyone the means to become aware of the impact of their digital habits and gradually change their use of available technologies.

A service adapted to companies of all sizes.

With FileVert Pro and Solidarity you can send large files and even transmit complete folders of up to 20 GB per sending to your recipients. In addition to features adapted to professionals, your transfers are used to finance projects committed to environmental protection.

Because at FileVert we believe that all means are good to act, we use these processes to do so: carbon offsetting with Goodplanet, corporate philanthropy to targeted associations.

A service adapted to the most accurate use that contributes to more digital sobriety.

Files will be available 48 hours as a non-subscribed user and 15 days as a FileVert member. FileVert has voluntarily chosen to limit the storage period of the files hosted on its servers to the strict minimum: 48 hours of storage is the period proposed in the free formula.

Make a transfer


Add files

To start and add files or folders to send, you must click on the "Drag and Drop File" button or directly drag and drop your files onto the button. In the upload form, you can add additional files to be uploaded by clicking on the "add files" or "add folder" button.

Get a sharing link

After adding your files, the upload form will ask you to generate a sharing link that you can provide to your recipients via the "Get a link" tab. Once the upload has been validated, you can copy the link to your clipboard to integrate it wherever you want. You can also use the "mailto" button to integrate the generated link directly into the body of a new e-mail. A practical feature and a real time saver for the user!

Send by email: Add the emails of your contacts
(FileVert Pro and Solidarity only)

In the sending form, you can add the e-mail addresses of your recipients via the "Send by e-mail" tab where you can enter the e-mail addresses of your recipients up to a limit of 20 per sending. Validate the entry of a contact's e-mail address by adding a "space" between each address or by pressing the "Enter" key on your keyboard. You can cancel the entry of an e-mail address by clicking on the dedicated delete button.

Add a transfer name (optional)

You can specify a subject to your transfers so that your recipients can identify them more easily. The chosen transfer name will be used in the subject and content of notification emails informing your recipients of the availability of the files.

Add a message (optional)

You can add a personalized message for your recipients. This message will be displayed in the notification e-mail telling them that new files are available.

Add a password (optional)

You can secure access to your file transfer by adding a password by clicking on "the padlock". Define your password, confirm it and validate by clicking on the "save" button. Only you will know the password associated with your file transfer. It is up to you to communicate it to your contacts and recipients to access the files.

Validate the sending of files

Once you have selected your files, you can validate the sending of your file transfer by clicking on "Send". Once your file upload is complete, you will be able to view the estimated numerical impact of your upload and its availability time. You will immediately receive a summary e-mail with the information about your file transfer.

Deletion option upon completion of the download

We have implemented a unique option: the automatic deletion of the transfer as soon as it is downloaded by the recipient. This option makes the transfer more environmentally friendly by drastically limiting the retention time of files on our servers and provides an additional guarantee of security. This option is currently only available for sending to a single recipient.
