File Sharing tools for making your office work simple

| Thursday, December 11, 2008

File sharing is one of the important and tedious work for everyone. simple mailing services will not be useful for his due to is slow uploading and restrictions in file types and file sizes.. i found these tools below will be a solution for file sharing. here are the file sharing tools


  YouSendIt  

This service is may be heard by you. It is one of the filesharing website that is available to you for very long time. It provides three types of account pro, business plus, corporate suite it gives 14 day trail account for free.


 
 FileMail  

This Webbased filesharing website is free to use and it require Flash 10 to run the app.. first it uploads the files to its server and then sends a small hyper link to the receptient. its easy for the receiver to get the files. after completing the transfer files are removed by the server.
 
 

 FileAi 

Fileai is a free to use site for file transfer works on almost all the systems.. no need for any software download it protects the file with encryption and trasfers the file like a peer to peer mode and that of a bit torrent. which is some what new and different from the other two sites above..



 Zapr 

Zapr is a desktop based windows only file sharing tool which can be installed and it sits right on your system tray and acts like a small server.  so no uploading is required by you. And you can set the privacy level in this and then send the files. password protection is also provided in this.




FileDropper 


File Dropper is a simple and fast file transfer site which can upload your files upto 5Gb after uploading it gives you a download link which can be used to send that link through mail. premium services are also avaiable.




FileShaker 


File shaker looks very similar to the File dropper and one good thing is it can send as much as unbeliveable 10Gb file size.


Drop.io


Drop.io is one of the best file sharing site here on net. it has lots of feature like send the content via email phone fax and more. files will be private and it will not be found by any search engine so that it can be safe to go to the required destination alone.



DropBox


DropBox is also one of the best for transfering files it can be kept as a menubar in your desktop. it provides syn your files that you put inside the drop box and easy to share. this is prefeared my most users.
 I think is post will be very useful to you. if you find anyother filesharing sites then you can share that there.


If find my posts are interesting then subscribe to my RSS or to my Email to get good and interesting tips, reviews of web and lots more..
