Sending files using conventional methods is a real pain in the neck. Using a courier service does not make sense when data is urgently required at the recipient's end and a delay of even few hours can cause huge financial or business losses. Email transfer is inefficient as it does not allow large attachments. Even the best of email servers do not accept attachments. Compressing the files also is not a solution when you have to send a large number of files. Your Internet Service Providers (ISPs) may also not be very forthcoming in letting you fill up their hard drives by sending large files. Even, FTP (File Transfer Protocol) which has been in use for a long time now for sharing files between computers on a TCP/IP network is not very helpful in large file transfer. FTP is quite complicated method to transfer big files as both sender and receiver need to install special software to share the files. Moreover, there is always a possibility of data theft in transfer of files via FTP as the information is not sent in an encrypted form. Some organizations even choose to have their own site or buy server space to share information.
Nothing can, however, be compared with the ease and flexibility offered by file transfer services. You can transfer big files of up to 2 gigabytes. This service is especially useful for organizations that need to send large files to their clients on and off. Moreover, there is no need to install special software, neither on the sender's computer nor of the recipient's. This is the most secured method of online file transfer as these applications are fully secured and even persons with sound knowledge in the information technology field cannot intercept the transfer process. In addition to that, many such services allow you to take a free trial before subscribing for the paid service.
All you need to do is to sign up with a reputed and suitable service, upload the files that you need to send, choose a plan, put the recipient's email address and send them. The latter can also download the files without any problems. For medium and small-scale organizations there are file transfer services that offer 15 day plans to transfer big files that can be renewed any time. This saves them a lot of money.
