Sendthisfile.com, a Wichita-based company that specializes in the secure transfer of large files, recently surpassed one million registered users. I was recently pointed to this service by a computer tech friend who had sent a file to me that was too large for email. If you are in a pinch and need an easy way to send (or receive) a large file, this service looks like a good match. You can setup a “FREE” account or go for one of the paid accounts that provide more features. Limitations of the “FREE” account is reflected in the clip below. The service is as easy as 1-2-3…
1 – Enter the recipient’s email address (and small message)
2- Select a file, and
3 – Click the SendThisFile button!
The recipient will receive the email with a link to a download location at SendThisFile.com. Instructions are clearly given to the recipient on the process; which is very easy.
One thing I did during the testing was use an encryption program to encrypt the file I was sending, as an added measure of security and control on my part. I do not like sending anything into the cloud that could breach my privacy. I simply provided the recipient a password clue that he would only know.
