4 Popular Large File Transfer Methods With Big Deficiencies

Overview

Sending someone multi-megabyte or even gigabyte-sized files is getting more common these days. For example, in our Help Desk, it's normal to receive a zip file of log data of over 100MB. While it might seem this is just a highly specialized case that's only common in the tech business, it's not.

A single high resolution image can already run up to a few megabytes, while a regular video can easily exceed 50MB. We often use videos and images in our Power Point presentations and other files, so media file attachments of these types can be pretty common. 

The problem is, people often resort to solutions that aren't suitable for sending large files, especially in an enterprise environment. Email, which is the most common way of sending files, is not suitable for this. So are other methods many people unwisely use at work for sharing really big files; files that are even much larger than a gigabyte.
