Typically, clients will send me files (photos, text documents, spreadsheets) via email. However for large files (high-res photos, videos, audio) or large groupings of files, email can be unwieldy.
The TransferBigFiles.com drop-box embedded on this website’s new upload page (deactivated 2019) enables clients to send me all their files (large and small) directly from this website, with a simple interface.
From the FAQ: “TransferBigFiles.com makes it very easy to send and share large files that are generally too big to email. It does this by allowing you to upload your file to our servers and it sends a link to a page where the file can then be retrieved by your recipient.”
This service also allows me to send large files (backups, Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator files, large media files) to my clients. You will be alerted by email that a set of files have been sent to you. The email contains the download link for the files, which can be encrypted and only decrypted with a password for exchange of sensitive information.
