How can I transfer files with TeamViewer

No ratings

Using TeamViewer, you can quickly and easily send large files to friends and colleagues over the internet. You can transfer files securely and directly to a remote computer or server. With TeamViewer file transfer, you can, for example, send attachments that are too large for your email, or transfer files to your media server, or share large amounts of data without an FTP server.

The transmission is secure (encrypted), fast, and direct (peer-to-peer).

To transfer files from one computer to the other, use:

  • the file transfer mode: copy files back and forth between two devices.
    There are two ways to use the file transfer mode:
    you can select "File transfer" underneath the Partner ID field in the TeamViewer window, before you click the "Connect" button there;
    or you can make a regular Remote Control connection to the other computer, and then click "Files & Extras > Open file transfer" on the toolbar above the session window:

  • the direct file transfer to contacts: send files to contacts via the Windows context menu or via the Computers & Contacts list. In the Computers & Contacts list, you can right-click on an entry and then click the paperclip icon in the menu to send a file:

  • Drag & Drop: copy files within a Remote Control session by dragging and dropping the files from the remote window to your window, or vice versa (Windows PCs only).

You can also link TeamViewer to your cloud storage account (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box) and share files that you have stored there. To do that, click "Files & Extras" on the TeamViewer toolbar while connected to a remote computer, and then select "Share via file box".

Please find further information in chapter 5 of the TeamViewer manual - Remote Control.
