Support Reps: It is very important that you provide your contact information on this call so the firm can contact you once the data is available on the Secure Data Exchange.
Internal: Using MKT for Secure Data Exchange
If the file size is under 2GB, get the file through MKT. If more than 2GB, but less than 4GB, get the file using Send This File. If the file is larger than 4GB, send the Split this file utility to the user to break the file up into 1GB chunks that can be uploaded and then reassembled once they are downloaded. This is taken from the following help topic. http://cs.thomsonreuters.com/ua/acct_pr/acs/cs_us_en/kb_internal/restoring-customer-sql-data-for-testing.htm
- Upload the SQL database to your Secure Data Exchange. For instructions, see Uploading data to Secure Data Exchange.
