Have you ever needed to send a really large file to a friend or business associate? Possibly a whole folder full of images or a back up file from your website? Maybe you tried to do it with your email program and it bounced as being too large… Or you tried to FTP the files to a server somewhere, only then having to explain to your associate or friend how to install a FTP client and use it to retrieve the files…
Well, a friend of mine passed along this wonderous link to a free service aptly named: TransferBigFiles.com
The service works with pure simplicity, just select the files you want to send, enter the email address of the recipient and click upload.
The files will upload to Amazon S3 and a link will be sent to your friend or collegue with an explaination about how to retrieve same. So simple even a cave man could do it! (Sorry GEICO)
For a bit more security you can even add your own password to the files so only your friend or associate can have access to them for download.
I have used many services, I have installed flash upload managers on websites and I have been using FTP clients for years but I have to say this is the easiest and fasted way to get large files transferred to who you want, when you want – set and forget!
