This free service allows users who do not have an account on the site to send you a file, in complete security and confidentiality, via a minimalist form without advertisements or waiting times.

How can I receive files?
Simply activate file reception on the page Settings > Receive Files, then share the address of your file reception form with your contacts.
Received files are automatically quarantined and can be accessed through the Received Files page.
What is the maximum size of received files?
Through the management interface of your PDF Archive account, you can choose the maximum file size that can be sent to you using the "Receive Files" function. For free accounts, this limit is set to 1 MB. For Premium Accounts, it can be set to 10 MB, 100 MB, 1 GB, or 2 GB.
