We have a secure file transfer software called LiquidFiles that is provided by the NDUS. It can be used to send and receive files containing sensitive information that should never go over email unprotected.

“LiquidFiles is a virtual appliance that allows us to send and receive files, fast and securely. The application gives you the ability to send and request a file. Once you log into the site with your campus connection credentials, your account is ready to use. Files sent using the system are automatically deleted after 7 days and it has the capability to specify the maximum number of downloads.”

Proceed through the general information and payment information -- make SURE to put in your student id # correctly and WITHOUT the "w" at the beginning or your account will not work.
You will receive an email from Tk20 indicating that they are creating an account and then, a few days later, you will receive an email indicating that your account is "active." The email MAY also tell you that your student id# is your login or password but that is NOT correct. Once active, your username and password are the same as your NDUS login for Campus Connection and Blackboard.  If you recieve a messsage that says something like "use remote password" it means that the password is incorrect. You may change your campus connection password at http://www.minotstateu.edu/cc with the "change password" link on the right hand side.
For undergraduate or graduate Tk20 questions please contact lisa.borden-king@minotstateu.edu and Deborah.ringham@minotstateu.edu.
