- Choose the file format you wish to download the archive as - this defaults to a zip file. Choose “Send Download link via email” as the delivery option and click on “Create Archive”
- You will receive an email and the archive will be available for 5 days once it is created. *This service is meant for backups or transfers and not for storage, so it is only held temporarily.
