Filemail: Large-File Transfer Made Pretty Darn Easy

Most everyone I know who works with video or photos is always on the hunt for an easy way to share or transfer them.  Tough part is, unless you’re sending a REALLY low-resolution video, most video files are fairly large — too large to simply attach in an ordinary e-mail.

There are a ton of websites that allow you to send large files, and I’ve tried several. And with most, there are positives and negatives. Some are paid, many of the free ones are riddled with ads that make navigating the site confusing, and others may limit your file sizes to only a few hundred Megabytes.

Filemail is one I found recently that seems the most intuitive and user-friendly.

It’s free, but upgradable to Premium service for only $4 monthly.  The free version allows transfer of files up to 2 Gb.  Premium service ups your allowable file size to a whopping 10 Gb. It also allows you to upload multiple files, which is huge for photo-sharing with friends or family, because now all (or most of) your photos can be sent at once. There’s even a Corporate upgrade. You can compare the various plans here.
But even if you’re not interested in a paid membership, Filemail is still an easy to use and VERY convenient free service for the once-in-awhile large file sharer who doesn’t have his/her own FTP site.

  2. I deal with multiple companies that are in needs or transfering big files over to customers and I always suggest them Sytern to work with.

    I spent a lot of time evaluating all these services for sending files to clients, and chose Sytern!

    Their Free plan allows for files up to 500MB – more than enough for me!
    Their other plans start at a really cheap price!

    I like the slick user interface and the service is provided by a well-known solid website / software development company
    which means it is trustworthy and as been around since 2003

  3. The narrative style of the blog is the first attraction in any web site.
