What the best free large file transfer website or equivalent free FTP site?
Several of my transcription customers use this site to send me large video and audio files. I've never had a problem with it.
We use their free version, but there are various plans you can pay for to match your needs:
I use gmail. I've never had a problem.
To / from emails will not succeed alas, here's what it's all about.
When scanning at work I've been trying to find a simple easy method to handle larger scanned pdf files.
When using the Canon ImageRUNNER 7086 to scan documents to pdf, they get forwarded as attachments via email. The problem is the pdf file gets chopped into small scraps of about 800 KB to 2 MB each. That translates to only about six double-sided pages at 600 DPI per attachment. This means larger pdf scans use many separate emails. This turns out to be very impractical and time consuming because I have so many divided files to deal with.
I think the the Canon ImageRUNNER 7086 will transfer larger files if I give is a URL to send them to, but I guess I would need a free FTP site or some such thang?
I guess the biggest size (so far) has been about 50 MB and it got divided into 24 separate emails!
I do not think I'll have ISP limitations if I scan to an FTP and download the file to my work email, but I could be wrong on that.
Yeah, sorry. I was thinking large photos files.
You could always convert PDF to Word
The You Send It site would work for you. I've sent and received files as large as 40 MB without problems. It all arrives as one file.
Thank you all, your helpfulness is appreciated!
i use sendspace to upload music mixes here on A2K, most of the zip files are around 60 mb
