Tips to Send Large Files without Email

When it comes to send large files there are several tools and services on the web designed to overcome the limitations of standard email providers and to allow any person with no technical knowledge to transfer big files with ease. In this Links I have personally collected and reviewed the best tools out there that you can use to to collaborate on files of any size.

You may wonder why you need a specific service to send big files. Can't you simply attach your files to a standard email message? Unfortunately no, you can't, because standard email providers forbid you to send files above a certain size (typically 20MBs). Larger files, in fact, would be too heavy to handle for the email provider and they may clog up the inbox of your recipient.

There are three main categories of services that allow you to transfer large files over the Internet
  1. P2P tools: You establish a direct connection with the computer of another person and you send your files in real time. You can transfer files of any size, without restrictions, but both the receiver and the sender must be online at the same time. P2P tools are always free to use (ex. Skype).
  2. Online storage services: You upload your files to a service that provides you with online storage space. Since each file you upload to an online storage space is identified by a unique Internet address, sharing that address will allow other people to download your files. Online storage services are both free and paid (ex. Dropbox)
  3. Special email clients: You send an email message via a special service that allows you to upload bigger files than those allowed by standard email providers. Generally, these special email clients set an expiry date for the recipient to collect the files. Special email clients are both free and paid (ex. FileMail)
