Send large files to anyone with TransferBIGFiles

When you need to transfer really big files to your friends or to yourself, you know, that might be a big headache. The big file of more than 10MB cannot be attached to email (for some providers, this limitation is even at the lower file attachment size), and if you are sending it somebody hidden behind the professional business firewall, your attachment might be stripped due to the corporate security regulations. Definitely, you can use FTP, but here you need available FTP server and special software for uploading.

So, there is a gap, when users needs do not have straightforward solution built in the regular OS software package. As usual, when there is a gap, you can find solution on the Web. There are multiple sites, offering free files storage and distribution. But, in spite of the huge list of providers, it might be challenging to find a right one, which will match your particular needs. In this post, we are going to present solution, offered by Website

Service Advantages:
  • Service is simple and straightforward. There's no registration required to use the website. You can just go to the home page and start uploading your files. Next, select the files you want to send and TransferBigFiles will email the recipient with a link to the download page.
  • TransferBigFiles does not limit the amount of space your account can use on our servers.
  • You can add message to the email recipient.
  • You can protect the data, if you wish, with password for better security.
Service Disadvantages:
  • Your files may not be larger than one (1) GB.
  • Files are stored for a limited time – for up to 5 days or
  • There is maximum amount of file downloads permitted – file is removed when limit of 20 downloads is reached.
Summary: The service will not fit to any purposes. If you need to store your data for a longer period, or if you need to broadcast your files with a big amount of recipients, that is not for you. Otherwise, give this service a try.
