Need a Super Easy Way to Share and Send Large Files Online?

By July 25, 2020No Comments

When I had to send large files to people (over 10 mb) and didn’t want to risk the issues with attaching them by email, I used to open my FTP program, upload the files, rename them if needed, copy the URL and then e-mail that to people. I had more or less accepted this as a suitable option but ever since a friend suggested DropBox as an even simpler way. He was right! After I installed the FREE software, a new folder was created on my computer. Any files I add to that folder automatically get synced with an online folder.

So now when I need to send large files, I just copy them to my Dropbox folder, right click on them and get the Public Link and then paste that into my e-mail. No more messing with FTP programs. It works great. There is also the ability to access your online drop box from remote computers, mobile devices so you important files are always accessible to you. There is a public and private folder option and you can create additional folders. It is like having remote storage fully synced to all your devices. And did I mention it was free?!!!
