More tools you should have in your Admin Toolbox: Blade TS

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 11-May-2008 11:10

A few months ago I posted a few notes about tools I have in my servers that help me a lot. Today I will be posting about a file transfer tool, Blade Tranfer Services.

The idea is simple: you have large files and need to safely transfer these across your network or the Internet. You might even want to have your users to upload by themselves, but have their files going into different folders so that they are completely separate from each other.

In my case I needed to transfer a couple of large (20 GB each) virtual HD files back to my home server. Those VHD were created from an image of the Geekzone server drives so that I can have a copy here I can use for testing - and backup.


Blade Tranfer Services
 is very easy to install - it will automatically configure itself as a folder on your IIS server and start. You will just browse to /bladets and be greeted with a page with direct links to upload and download applets.

There is also a full client, but the web-based service is very good. You can pause, restart the uploads and you know for sure the files are 100% transferred - no corruption, no loss of data.

You can also enable a /drop folder so people can browse the upload folder directly - but the download option is much safer.

It uses http and https to transfer files and a configuration page allows you to change the default upload folder on your server and SMTP and SNMP notidications.
