Here are a few popular ways to get large files to others:
- Burn files to disk such as a CD/flash drive
- Purchase a network hard drive with internet sharing capabilities and provide others with a website address and a password to have access to the info.
- Use a website service such as DropBox.com
My favorite new way to send files is by using Sendoid. It is probably the easiest way to send files anywhere to anyone, and it's free. Before, when I sent files to someone I had to upload them to a remote server and send the person trying to receive the file a link by email. This did work just fine, but I had to wait while the file had completed its upload before I could send the link to be downloaded.
With Sendoid you can just go to the website www.sendoid.com and click and choose the files to share, or download the Sendoid program. Sendoid is a "peer to peer" program, which means that any file selected to be shared goes from your computer directly to your selected party. Once your file is chosen Sendoid will give you a link to email. Now you are just emailing a simple link instead of a sizable file so it should be instant. When a person receives the email, they click on the link and that will start the download to their computer.
The transmission of the file will be secure via a 128bit AES encryption algorithm, link obfuscation, plus you have the option of adding a password too. Sendoid claims that any limits in transfer size are limited based on the resources available on your local machine (usually between 600 megabytes & 1 gigabyte)
It really is the easiest way to send any file. Try it out for yourself and tell me about your experience. When someone asks " How did you find out about that?" tell them "I saw it on SanTanValley.com!".
