Quick way to send large files for free

As transcribed from my video https://youtu.be/0X75Eg4gdpc

“Frequently I need to send out large files to people. What many don’t realize is most email servers have issues with file attachments above 10 megabytes. Here is something for you to consider.

All of the different networks have their own flavor that you can use. You’ve got Dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/, OneDrive by Microsoft https://onedrive.live.com/, Google Drive https://www.google.com/drive/, and Apple iCloud https://www.icloud.com/.

Large File Sharing wetransfer

There’s another website that you should be aware of, and it’s called https://wetransfer.com/ It’s great because you don’t have to register for it, you don’t need an account, all you do is you put in an email address of where you want to send the large files and then you just upload the files.

You can upload as many as you want, up to 2GB (gigabytes) total limit. But you can do it multiple times if you have many files that you want to send. You have the ability to either send the large files with the link to somebody by email so they can click on it and download it, or you could have the ability to display that link to yourself and then you email that off to perhaps a group of people.

They also have a subscription version where you can send up to 20GB at once and also store files, even password protect them and set when they expire. Thsi is a great website that you should check out if you need to send large files.”
