File Sharing Programs

Have you ever attempted to send a large file only to find that it was too big for email? A lot of people have. That is why we have compiled the four most popular file-sharing programs below. Hopefully this makes your life a little easier.


YouSendIt is a cloud-based storage system and is free. It permits you to share large files and it’s quite simple to use. One of several attractive things about YouSendIt is that it gives the user control over their files by allowing them to set an expiration date for access, and they can establish who is able to download the files.


DropSend is very similar to YouSendIt. The primary difference being that it offers a range of options. You can choose the free option called DropSendLite. This version permits you to send five files a month. Then there is the basic version which allows you to send fifteen files a month and costs $5 a month. Finally there is the business version which comes with unlimited file sends and costs $99 a month.


SugarSync’s popularity grew as the popularity of smartphones and tablets grew. This is due to the fact that by setting up a SugarSync account users can save all of their files to all their devices at once. An additional advantage to SugarSync is that it allows users to specify who has access to these files; this makes it easy to share movies and music with family and coworkers.


Dropbox, too, has turned into a must-have program for mobile computing. Like SugarSync, it allows you to instantaneously store files on all of your devices at once. It also is available in both free and paid varieties.
