Too large to send by e-mail tip

If you want to e-mail drawings or whatever attachment that are too large for either you or the recipient here is an alternative to FTP.

Using FileCentral.se (Swedish company but the site is in English) you can send files up to 2 GB for free. I've tried it several times and it worked very well and with great speed.

Another one I've used many times for several years is YouSendIt but it's limited to 100 MB if you want to do it for free.

Some others are RapidShare, Drop.io, File.io and PipeBytes. PipeBytes is more private because "The file is not shared on Internet - it is sent directly to your recipient."

Another tip is to zip the file(s) first using 7-zip that often is smaller than ordinary zip. IZArc is also a great freeware that among many other formats handle 7-ZIP. You ca

Via IDG (in Swedish).

    I am currently developing a web site that allows you to securely send files that are too big to e-mail. There are no file or size limits, no software to download and install, and it is 100% free.

    The site is http://fileai.com/, and we are currently in open beta. If you happen to stop by and give it a try, we'd appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks! :)
