Sharing Large Files
Being a TRT every once in a while I'll have to receive or send large files, usually grade books that can push 15Mb sometimes. But sometimes our email server doesn't like huge files. I've written about DropLR a few times and it's great, especially the task bar app. Today I came across another one that might be even easier to use called Paste Link. It can handle files up to 25Mb for the free account and 2Gb if you register (right now you have to put in your email address to request a registration).
It's super simple. Just drag your file onto the website and it auto-generates a link that you can then email to someone else. There's no limit to how many files you can send and the link is good for seven days. I've been working on a Keynote presentation with someone for the last few weeks and it's a huge file but now I know how I can get it to him. Thanks Paste Link web site creator people dudes (or dudettes).
Another one I'm trying too is called File Dropper, which allows files up to 5Gb. That's huge. And while we're at it, here's a bunch more free file sharing services from FreeTech4Teachers.
