Free Online Private File Sharing and Large Email Attachments

17 January 2010 3 Comments

The rapid growth of Internet has changed the way we interact with each other. It has altered our way of daily living e.g. some are shopping online, some are spending our social life online, and some are doing business online. The old traditions like exchanging letters through posts, buying in shopping malls, and many others are fading. The further emergence of free content sharing sites has eased the way to exchange your favorite material like pictures, videos, music, and documents with family members, friends, or colleagues living apart. Even you can share it with general internet users.

The available solutions for file sharing like www based hyperlinked documents or p2p sharing are not fit for private sharing. It means that the shared files may get indexed by search engines, web repository crawling file sharing sites or p2p softwares. The privacy is compromised and your personal content is accessible to others. One solution to this problem is using email attachments but usually they have lower file size limits.

Drop.io is providing the best solution for private sharing of digital files through their easy interface which just takes two clicks. Users create and control their sharing points called “drops”.  Once the user is done with “drop” creation, he has got ample ways to upload and share files like url, email, phone, fax, facebook, firefox, and mms. Similarly, your desired subscribes can receive uploads and updates through email/sms alert, rss, twitter, and many others. You can even charge for access to your drop’s material. The user is free to create as many drops of each 100MB size. Drop.io manager lets you manage your all drops with single interface having rich features.

Drop.io has been mentioned in a list by Times Magazine titled “Top 50 websites of 2009”. Recently, Yahoomail has extended the email attachment size to 100 MB using drop.io. Yahoomail has enabled this feature using their latest “Application” feature.
