3 Easy Ways To Send Large Files For Free

Sometimes you need to send or share a file with someone, but it's too big to attach to an email - for example, a 100MB video file. Many email accounts max out at 10MB attachments (about the size of two mp3 music files). A convenient alternative may be to use one of the free file sharing services listed below; you send the file to the service and you get a link, which you send to your recipient who can then download the file via the link. Here are three simple, free services to get you started, none of them require you or the recipient to install anything.

Pastelink - from the website:
There's no limit to how many files you can share. Each file is automatically stored for 7 days. Send movies to friends, TPS reports to coworkers, study guides for students, or Tweet a resume to the world!

250MB file limit without a free account, 2GB with a free account.

Ge.tt - from the web site:

With Ge.tt you can turn any type of file into web content and share it instantly. You can share documents, video, music and photos in the browser making them instantly available for the recipient. If you sign up, you can even re-use and keep track of the materials that you previously shared.

If you sign up, you also get 2GB free storage - but you don't need to sign up to use it.

Dropcanvas -  from the website:

Currently we're offering an unlimited amount of storage, with a limit of 5gb per canvas. This is subject to change in the future, but we'll always be generous.

You can create multiple "canvases", but for most folk, just drag and drop your file(s) to share them.

There you go - and no dodgy files, please!
