How do you transfer files to your personal devices for your portfolio with strict company IT?

If you have website hosting could you sign into your site and transfer files to your host via ftp?


haha yeah that was one of the first things I tried. I use Wix and its blocked.

I have a work macbook, but it doesnt read any external harddrives. All file sharing websites and cloud platforms are blocked, ie. emails, google drive, wetransfer, dropbox. I can use our company OneDrive, but it doesnt allow for downloads on personal device. We were even blocked from Google images until we got an exception from IT recently. The only solution I’ve found that only emailing myself will work but its limited to 33mb.


Hmm in that case I wonder if you could dump all of your stuff into a XD doc with editing rights, email the link to yourself, and download from there?

do you use any sort of messaging app that will allow file transfer such as slack or anything?

we use teams and the 365 suite. the only thing i could think of is OneDrive since I can have it on my personal phone too, but it appears that if i upload files from my work laptop, I cant download it from my phone.

Will airdrop work?

final idea…. have you considered Safe Mode? Hoping they forgot to extend the same restrictions to safe mode. 🤞


How do you share files with vendors? Couldn’t you use that platform and then DL? Also: if your MacBook has an SD card slot, maybe that?

What about Creative Cloud libraries?


My work mac is exactly the same. Only thing I can do is email something to my personal email. Sounds like we work in the same company or at least sector of industry 🙃
