How to Securely Send Large Files Over the Internet

February 2007

From the Mediator Tech blog of Tammy Lenski.

I’ve written before about ways to work around email attachment-size limits that sometimes get in the way of sending or receiving large files. In Work Around

Email Attachment Size Limits, I profiled file-sharing service YouSendIt. Now I’ve got two more I’d recommend and they both offer something a bit different from one another:

SendThisFile. I found this one thanks to Bob Ambrogi, who used it to send me a large PowerPoint file in preparation for a New England ACR panel he was serving on and I was moderating. It worked like a charm, instantly and without a hassle. It’s now my preferred service…and it’s free.

BoxCloud. Thanks to MacWorld, I learned about BoxCloud and am pretty intrigued. Unlike YouSendIt and SendThisFile, BoxCloud enables you to “host the file on your own hard drive and share it through a small application on your computer. Not only does this offer a bit more security, but it gives you more control over what is shared, to whom, and how it is accessed.” It’s as easy to use as dragging a file onto the name of the receiver in your buddy list. No account required and it’s free for the first of four levels of service.
