Files allow users to import or create files of various types in their workspace. Files can be scripts to work with data, documents, images etc. Files can be created and accessed in the Files tab and can be any type of file, including:
- SQL (.sql)
- source code
- R files (.r)
- LaTeX markup (.rwn)
- archives (.zip, 7z, .gz)
- plain text (.txt)
- image files (.jpeg, .png)
- audio files (.wav)
- Word documents (.docx)
- PDF documents (.pdf)
Files can be both uploaded and downloaded, and can be renamed once they are in a workspace. You can also create files directly within the workspace, using the built-in editor.
To upload files using the web interface
When in the workspace, navigate to ‘Add’ dropdown menu (shown by a + sign as shown right) and select ‘Upload File’. You can either drag and drop your files into the ‘Upload file’ panel or browse and select the file to upload. You can change the upload destination by using the link at the bottom left of the screen. Alternatively, you can upload your files to your workspace Inbox where they can then be filed later. Before uploading, confirm that your data has no Personally Identifiable Information then click the Upload button and your files will be uploaded in to the selected folder. You can see the progress of your upload and then once the files have been safely sent to the Inbound Airlock, you can use the close or "x" button in the tab to close the upload tab.
On upload, all files go through an Inbound Airlock.
