It happened to all of us: we tried to share a large file, and we got an error message that the file was too large to send it as an email attachment. It’s very annoying. We know how easy it is to send files through email, but it has its ups and downs.
There are so many file-sharing tools out there, which come with amazing storage facilities. They make it easier for you to send large files without any problems.
We are here to give you the best sharing files tools out there.
Dropmark comes with an easy file sharing in the cloud and drag and drops functionality, which makes it even easier to transfer files from desktop to browser. You can also invite your friends to view or organize files or give each other shareable short links.
The app offers many diverse options to share and organize your files. You can create custom playlists if you drag a video or audio from YouTube, Vimeo or SoundCloud, or from the desktop.
Keep in mind that the app is not free. You can subscribe to the $5 monthly package. For the annual fee, you will need to pay $40.
Dropbox is, without a doubt, one of the best cloud storage and file-sharing tools out there. It comes with file synchronization with support for multiple platforms, such as Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and iOS.
All you need to do is create a shared folder and add people to it.
This shared folder appears in the Dropbox of all the members you added, and they will be able to view, or edit, or organize, or even delete the files you added. You can also create a link to a certain folder or file so that you can only share that folder or those files with a person that does not have Dropbox.
Box comes with an amazing file sharing service, which allows users to share files from pretty much anywhere. After you share links or photos or presentations, the person you want to get them will receive the files in their browser. The normal plan enables you to upload 250 MB, and you are given 10 GB of personal storage. Box also comes with user email notifications, which allows you to see when a team member uploads or makes a comment on a document.
There are also paid accounts meant for business, which cost $35 per month.
This one is one of the most popular services out there. It allows you to create new documents, spreadsheets, and share them with anyone. It also comes with real-time collaboration, and it allows users to see the changes as they appear. It’s cool because it keeps track of all the changes done so that you can look back as far as 30 days. The service is free, and it comes with 15GB of free storage. Extra storage costs $1.99 per month, and you can get up to 100GB.
