Why the File Transfer Calculator Matters to You
Our file transfer calculator is used to determine the time required to upload or transfer any file, be it photo, video or text document based on your uploading speed or we called transfer speed. The whole process is just a simulation of calculation based on the data you input and no file are being transfer for the process.
It is only mimicking or simulate the actual process and tells you the actual time needed to complete the process of uploading your files to the cloud storage server. It is particularly useful if you have not purchase any cloud storage service yet. You would need to know how fast your ISP are able to facilitate your backup or cloud storage process.
I’m sure we all have tonnes of files that need to backup or store them in the cloud. But if the time invested in uploading are too consuming, we would suggest you to try other method than the cloud storage.
How to Use Our Calculator
1. Enter the file size that you need to upload. It can be a single file size or the entire folder that you would like to upload to the cloud storage server.
Here, our unit is in Megabytes (MB). You might be asking why MB and not GB, that’s because a single photo of 1024 x 786 is about the size of 3MB.
If you got a movie of a 1.5GB to upload, please multiple it with 1000 which is 1500MB.
We find it much easier to multiple than to divide.
2. Enter your upload speed. If you have no idea, check it with “I don’t know my upload (transfer) speed” above.
We are using testmy.net facilities to test your upload or transfer speed.
You can find out more details about their speed test and why they are different.
We need real upload or transfer speed rather than just any broadband speed test.
