Bandwidth is a measure of the total data transfer activity on an account. Every time a file is uploaded or downloaded using your ShareFile account, bandwidth is used. Bandwidth is recorded on your account for any downloads (including downloads canceled part of the way through) and for any uploads that fully complete. For example, if you upload a file that is 10MB in size and it is downloaded four times, a total of 50MB of bandwidth is used (10MB for the upload, and 40MB for the four downloads).

Your bandwidth usage automatically resets to zero on the first day of each month.
