In a global digital village like now, so much content is being shared across the internet. Whether it is heavy multimedia content shot on our phones or work files on our computers, large files can be quite a challenge to send. We have compiled for you a list of the best options you can consider when transferring large files online.
Best Ways to Send Large Files Online in 2023
This has been my go-to for years, so naturally, I will start with it. WeTransfer is a free, no-registration file access and distribution system that handles files of up to 2 GB at a go. You can either use a recipient’s email as the receiver or generate the download URL and share it with them.
It is possible to upgrade to the Pro version for a fee if you want to send files up to 200 GB in size. WeTransfer Pro additionally gives you up to 1TB of storage.
This easy-to-use website allows you to send files of up to 5GB for free. There are no limitations on the number of times you can send files. The website also generates a link for the uploaded file for sharing.
You have to register for an account with FileDropper to benefit from the permanent 2GB storage offered.
This service lets you share large files up to 5 GB free using email or a secure link. You can upgrade to an individual pro offering that has a maximum transfer size of 250GB.
For a business that might want more, Filemail has two other subscription options with unlimited transfer sizes.
Files to Friends
I often think of this as ‘the tiny helper’, you can feel it in the name even. With File to Friends, you can send multiple files of up to 1 GB each. Even better, you are not required to register for an account with them to start transfers.
There is a Files to Friends Plus option, which is a premium offering with a transfer size limit of 5GB.
It is a cloud storage service, but it also offers a large file-sharing service online. You can send files of 5GB and total of 10 files at a time, for free. No registration is required as on pCloud, so it is very easy to use.
