Geek Tip: Use YouSendIt to Send Big Files

If you ever find yourself needing to email a large file, but you don't want to deal with long wait times for uploading attachments, just send them through the website YouSendIt. With YouSendIt, you can send high-quality videos, whole albums of music, and a ton of high-resolution photos at once, up to 2GB in size (Gmail's limit is 10 MB).

When you send your files from the YouSendIt site, the person you sent the email to receives a link. By clicking the link, the recipient gets to a page where your file is, so that she can download it to her desktop. The whole process is fast and easy, and you'll even get a confirmation that the file was received in your email inbox. Now start bombarding your BFF with those vacay pics!

Very useful files search engine. http://Indexoffiles.com is a search engine designed to search files in various file sharing and uploading sites.

yousendit is great, but i've found www.box.net to be better and more user friendly. you can upload 100s of files and sent them out in 1 link.

I use yousendit and haven't had any problems with it either. I also like transferbigfiles.com, it's free and they don't require you to sign up for an account. It's still in beta so I occasionally get an error message, but if I just reload the site and try again, it always works.

I love You Send It! I used to use it all the time, friends would send videos. Good tip!

I agree with Clarient. Back when it first came out, yousendit was good but now I prefer SendSpace, MediaFire or MegaUpload - especially MediaFire though, since they keep your files indefinitely. Oh, and not that it really matters, but the attachment size for gmail was raised a bit ago. Now it's 20MB.

Is there any downside? Do they collect email addresses for spamming or anything like that? Is there a charge?

How do those others outshine YouSendI clarient? I'm just wondering, we use it at work all the time when a client needs a high res photo or they need to send us one.
