Transferring Large Files

As animators, we are accustomed to having to transfer extremely large files. Here’s a few sites that will make it a little easier for you:

1. Dropbox – Dropbox is a simple to use service that gives you 2 GB for free and you can easily earn more space by making recommendations, or linking it to mailbox or doing a few really small things. Great site, but sometimes it can be a little slow.

2. Wetransferhttp://www.wetransfer.com is super fast and super easy. You can send a file as large 2GB. There is no sign up or annoying emails. Its a simple user-friendly service. This is for temporary transferring though, so files are only good for a week.

3. Ubuntu Onehttps://one.ubuntu.com/

4. Box.com – free version gives you 5GB of space, but file size limit is 250 MB. https://www.box.com/pricing/

5. Apple iCloud – 5 GB of free space – https://www.icloud.com/

6. Amazon Cloud – 5GB of free space  – http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000796931&ref_=cd_lm_rd_fp

7. Google Drive – 15 GB of free space – upload any type of file including videos and you can share them.

8. Mediafire – 10 GB and upto 50 GB for FREE  (the catch, there are ads, but seriously, not a big deal) – https://www.mediafire.com/upgrade/

If you can think of more sites or services, let us know.
