9 Ways To Share Big Files For Free

If you’ve ever tried to send large files via email, you know it can be problematic because of file-size limitations. Meanwhile, some file-sharing services put a size limit on the file being transferred, making it impossible to share a movie clip with friends or present a sample of your work to a client. And still others require you to sign up for an account, which can be a hassle.

Here’s a roundup of web-based file-sharing sites that allow you to share large files for free without having to sign up for an account.
