    Default Dropbox ... or is there something easier / safer ??

    Hi all

    just wondering whether Dropbox is still the go to app for transferring larger files that won't go through normal email or other apps ... talking around 500MB + files

    Cheers

    There are plenty of others as well. The Free versions (without an account - Just drop and get link) you have no control, The account version-Free from memory you have control.. Places like https://ufile.io/ Can handle 5GB files with storage upto 10GB So 500MB is nothing really. The files disappear (on the free version) after 30 days.

    I use to FTP Files to a web space. I think you can setup FTP on Windows to make your own server for large files for others to access.
