Setting Transfer’s Priority

A transfer’s priority, along with its priority lane, can be used to schedule when it will arrive versus other transfers active on the same server.

Priority is number from 0 to 100 used to sort transfers within a priority lane. Lower values are considered higher priority; i.e. priority 1 takes precedence over priority 2. The default is 100. The priority of a transfer may be adjusted at any time while it is active.


Priority only affects the order of transfers within a single priority lane, not the amount of bandwidth that transfers are allocated.

To choose a priority:

  • Switch to the Transfer Manager.

  • In the Transfer Manager, click the ᐧᐧᐧ symbol to the left of the transfer to be adjusted. This will open a popup menu.

  • From the popup menu, click Priority. Enter a value from 0 to 100. Press Return.


The current priority will be displayed in the Transfer Summary.
