If You ever have come to contact with difficulties sending large files, the following information will definitely be of interest to You.
Let’s say, for example, You have accumulated a large amount of photographs, which You want to share with Your friends. So You start attaching five pictures to every e-mail to Your friend. Most likely around the fifth e-mail You realize that just to give a flash drive to Your friend is easier. Or, for example, You need a presentation to be in a colleague’s e-mail by tomorrow morning, but for some reason it “hangs” about a half gigabyte and refuses to “attach” to the letter.
For such cases, there are services that allow You to store the “heavy” files and send only links to them. In other words, You upload a file on the server, get a link and send it to a friend or colleague, who, in turn, downloads the file or files by following this link.
It would seem – problem solved, but the other problem arises – what kind of service for storing files to choose? Each user has its own scale of priorities, of which he gives preference to a particular service, although most likely the main parameter is the ratio of size (GB) and price.
To ensure that You do not waste your time searching for services and evaluating them, we offer a comparison price table of the most popular companies that offer services for storing and sharing files:
